An extract from a message from Annie Ogilvie six years ago
I am still Annie – the e’Pap secretary – thanking donors and volunteers for the wonderful work they are doing – but AT LAST – after 8 years of full time Hospice work and never having time to take on a school – I am now Annie – a real volunteer, visiting real schools with real children! YAY! I now have 3 schools to regularly visit! Shouts of ‘Tannie e’Pap’ at one school – ‘Gogo e’Pap’ at another and the boisterous, very precious group ‘leg hugs’ that almost knock me over – are such a joy in my life. I always try to go at ‘e’Pap feeding time’ to enjoy the whole scenario of cooks whisking e’Pap, expectant little faces waiting for their bowl, hands folded in prayerful thanks and invariably beginning or ending with amazing voices united in praising God or singing our National Anthem –with crossed hands over grateful little hearts!
