St. David’s Day
The response to our Advent Leaf Project has been excellent, so much so that we have been encouraged to purchase a quantity of painted leaves from Tom’s Indian ladies but this time with a beautiful hand-painted daffodil on a small leaf, size 3” for sale as a St. David’s Day emblem.


These are available in small quantities free of charge and if your church or organisation would like to have a batch for selling for our funds, please just let us know and they will be despatched in plenty of time. We hope this will become an acceptable and annual project.

It is impossible to feature everyone who has contributed to the work of HHI in a newsletter but we hope to feature a few special efforts in each edition, this issue features the following:


Thanks to the ladies of Hope and Market Square Uniting Church, Merthyr who regularly make and sell cards on behalf of H.H.I.



A Volunteer who is  experienced in selling items on e-bay, willing to sell unwanted gifts and other items donated to HHI.

Also if you have any unwanted gifts, which we may be able to sell.

An amazing £4,000 has been earned by Hazel and Ceinwen who every week have manned  a market stall in Pontypool Market selling unwanted gifts and running a Tombola Stall.
Thanks to them and all our supporters for their continued and most valuable support.
