Beckenham and Bromley Twins Club

Ghana Twins Foundation

One of our members Esi is travelling to Ghana with her daughters at the end of September to visit family and while she is out there she will be meeting with a charity called Ghana Twins Foundation.

Please see email from Esi below and if you have any donations you would like to make, she will be at Twins Plus on Tuesday, or alternatively you can contact Esi direct on her email address to arrange delivery/collection – she will be available until 24th September, when the shipments will be leaving our shores.

While I am out there I will be meeting with a charity called Ghana Twins Foundation (www.ghanatwinsfoundation.com), as well as visiting two orphanages that my grandma plays an active role in.

I plan on shipping out three+ large boxes which I am hoping to fill with clothes, shoes, toys, games, educational materials, stationery, dry food etc.

The children in the orphanages range from newborn to young adults. Many families who simply cannot afford to feed or clothe their children rely heavily on these wonderful organisations for much needed support. The twins foundation aim to help mothers of twins who are struggling. Many are on the streets and GTF assists in making sure these children (and mothers) receive a roof and access to education.

If anyone wishes to make a monetary donation that would also be brilliant. Boxes cost between £50-80 to ship, so all donations would aide the cause and any left be split equally between the charities.

It would be wonderful if twins club members would donate anything they can.

If you would like to donate anything and are unable to bring it along on Tuesday, please contact Esi by email: missyankey@gmail.com

The Beckenham and Bromley Twins Club Committee would like to invite you to FREE (yes Free!) drinks

BBTC Members,

The Beckenham and Bromley Twins Club Committee would like to invite you to FREE (yes Free!) drinks;

When: 8pm, Friday 3rd October
Where: Chequers Pub, Southborough Lane, Bromley BR2 8AP
http://www.gkflamegrill.co.uk/locations/chequers-bromley

This will give you the opportunity for a nice night out with other twin mum and dads and the chance to meet our committee members and if you wish, provide us with your views and opinions on how we might improve the support and information available to twins club members.

On the same night we will also be holding our annual AGM meeting as well, hopefully this will not take that long, and it will give you a good insight into how we run twins club, however participation is not required if you just fancy a drink.

Please let me know if you would like to attend so that I can ensure we have the beer, wine and soft drinks available.

If you have any questions about BBTC then please ask and I look forward to seeing you on the 3rd!!

Kind regards,

Hannah Walder
BBTC Chair

Summer Programme – THANK YOU SARAH!

A huge thank you to Sarah Ralph for organising our Summer Programme this year. A lot of effort goes into organising these events and it is very much appreciated.

The funded trips and fire station visits were well attended and our soft play session yesterday was a hit for adults and children alike.

If you attended any of the trips (or even if you didn’t!), we would really appreciate some feedback. Any comments you make will go towards shaping our programme for next year.
