We encourage visiting Christine Revell Children’s Home to all who are concerned about the welfare of children living in difficult circumstances. It is so easy to simply go on with our normal day-to-day lives and not concern ourselves with those less fortunate, or to push these thoughts to the back of our mind.
Visiting a home such as ours will bring more awareness of the plight of these children and encourage us to a greater sense of gratitude for our blessings. It also encourages our staff and children, and hopefully our visitors will leave with a desire to spread awareness of the home to their friends, family and colleagues.
If you are unable to visit our home you could get involved in other ways – read more about how you can Help Us.
If you are able to visit and would like to bring something for the children, may we ask you to please not bring unhealthy sweets and drinks but to select items from the list below. The children do get opportunities to eat chocolates and sweets, but we need to monitor what they eat and when, so we prefer it if our visitors rather bring items from our list. We appreciate your assistance in this regard – thanks!
- Marie biscuits
- Provita biscuits (Crunchyvites)
- Fresh juices or Ceres/ Halls mixes
- Yoghurts/Yoghurt drinks
- Fruit rolls, Raisins & Dried Fruits (visit SAD for ideas!)
- Cheese straws
- Glucose lollipops
NB: NO PEANUTS PLEASE (as these end up in their noses and ears most of the time!)
