I’m afraid we have to start this news entry with some sad news. Amelia P passed away on the 17th of March. She was very weak for her last two weeks, but still managed to ask her Nanny every day if any post had arrived. A volunteer described Amelia as a “bundle of sunshine” and we couldn’t agree more.

On other news, Milford-on-Sea Primary school held a mufti day and part of the proceeds have kindly been donated to Post Pals. The £135 raised will be used for postage to send out lots of cards and gifts. Year 5 and 6 were also introduced to Post Pals in their ICT lesson and wrote some letters. A huge thank you to everyone at Milford-on-Sea Primary school for their support and for creating so many smiles!
