The residents of the Father Ray Children’s Home will now be having a more comfortable night’s sleep, thanks to several groups of donors from three different countries.
Most bedding currently in use at the Home was purchased when construction on the final dormitory block was completed in 2004. For a long time the children have been sleeping on old mattresses and wrapping themselves in threadbare sheets. The pillows they have been using have seen better days and are now flat after being used for so many years.
The Australian visitors present new sheets to the children.
In October twenty four students from Sacred Heart School in South London paid a visit and agreed to purchase one hundred and thirty brand new mattresses.
New pillows were purchased with funds donated by friends of the Kenny family in Dublin Ireland. Niamh Kenny has volunteered at the Children’s Home several times and her family and friends got together to raise money.

Making their first trip to Pattaya, students and teachers from Girton Grammar School in Bendigo Australia visited the Home and donated enough funds to ensure every child received a new set of sheets.
From now on the youngsters will not complain of bugs on their mattresses. The teenagers will no longer moan that the sheets do not keep them warm and their teachers will be happy knowing the children are getting a good night’s sleep.
