A treat for little ones at Westminster House

British High Commissioner Dr. Peter Hayes and his wife Kirsty hosted a children’s tea party at Westminster House on October 10 to mark International Children’s Day. About 150 orphaned and disabled children enjoyed their time at Westminster House, playing games in the gardens with the High Commissioner, his wife and children.

The event was organised in collaboration with Hope for Children, an organisation working on behalf of handicapped, orphaned, poor and exploited children.

“Kirsty, my children and I have had a marvellous day opening up our home to such a happy and active group of children. I pay tribute to the fantastic job Hope for Children do in helping disadvantaged children enjoy a normal childhood. I’d like to say a big thank you to all our sponsors who provided food, toys and treats which helped make sure that the children had a great day out,” Dr. Hayes said.

Elephant House, Lanka Canneries, Motha Ltd, Unilever, HSBC and the Cinnamon Grand supported the event.
