Jo's thoughts before departure...

OceanStars :: Wednesday 22nd October 2008 :: This Story

I have known Dilanee since 1991 when we both moved to Fleet and began attending the same toddler group. Our families soon became great friends and our children have all grown up together, as we have grown older together!! Over the years we have shared many a happy family gathering both in Fleet and further afield,including visits to Centre Parcs and various campsites in France!! We have had lots of fun watching our children change from those small people who used to dress up and put on plays for us, to the sophisticated (?!!), independent young people that they are nowadays!!!!

So, when the Tsunami hit,it seemed only natural that I should support Dilanee in any way I could, and have been involved with Ocean Stars from the beginning as a Trustee and Secretary. Many an evening has been spent sitting discussing funding of various projects and I am really looking forward to being able to put faces to names and finally meet everyone in Sri Lanka. I am also so excited about being able to go with Dilanee to visit a place that is very special to her and has become special to me too. I know it will be an amazing time and a real adventure and I can't wait to get there and get to work with the rest of the team!! I'm sure in amongst the work there will be much fun and laughter!!!
