Little John's House

For the past couple of weeks, I've had a tough time keeping my lips sealed about a bit of very good news regarding BikerBetty, my friend with the Dirk Benedict obsession crush.

BB is a big supporter of Little John's House, a Romanian orphanage that was set up in 1993 for Ionut Balan and which now cares for six children, as well as providing outreach support and a summer school for other disadvantaged children in the area.

A few weeks ago, with Little John's House in mind, she took a late night visit to the Vodaphone World of Difference website after seeing one of their posters on the tube and decided to apply for this year's programme, not particularly expecting to get anywhere but at least it was worth a shot.

Within a few weeks of applying, BB found herself in the final group of eight individuals that have been given the opportunity to implement a project for their chosen charity, due to start at the end of September!

This is an amazing opportunity for all of the candidates but I know that BB is ecstatic about the opportunity to spend a whole year helping to change things for the better.  At some point, she is expecting to write a blog to keep people informed and you can count on it being added to the Blog Roll box to the right here.

In the meantime, keep an eye out on the facebook pages for World of Difference and Little John's House to see how things are going.

Good luck to you all - you are an inspiration!!
