Latest update from Luxor

Dear Sponsors and Supporters,

The charity apologise that our annual newsletter is late this year owing to unforeseen circumstances. There will be a full update for our supporters in January.

Several people have asked about the 2015 calendar, after a very careful financial review we have not produced a calendar this year, The cost of post has doubled and with additional cost of print, I am afraid it will cause the charity a significant financial loss. I hope you understand.

In the meantime we wish all our supporters a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year.

The UK charity acknowledges all our sponsors and supporters and thank you for your kindness and generosity throughout 2014.

Eve Lawton - Co-ordinator - SunShine Project UK

Dear Sunshine supporters,

Rachel Wilce a passionate Sunshine Project Supporter has come up with a great idea for fund raising in 2014. Rachel is collecting together 'Sunshine' recipes from anyone who would like to donate their personal recipes for that special dish you rustle up when you need a little bit of Sunshine in your day. Once Rachel has collected around 30 yummy recipes they will be published into a book for all to purchase with proceeds from the sales being donated to the Sunshine Project.

It would be nice to include some Egyptian recipes if anybody has one along with any other cuisines from around the globe. If it's a special Shepard's Pie to a sticky, sweet Om Ali, Rachel wants to hear from you.

Please visit her page below and 'like' and share, and if you have any popular feel good family recipes and would like to donate them to the 'Little book of Sunshine' recipe book please get in touch with Rachel. https://www.facebook.com/littlebookofsunshine

Eve Lawton Co-ordinator. On behalf of The Sunshine Project UK Directors.

Sunshine Music room

If you are travelling to Luxor and have a good quality Musical Instrument you no longer need, please ring or email Eve . The project in Luxor is in need of Musical instruments for music therapy and to teach children that are interested to play an instrument. This can be from anything from a guitar, trumpets, Tambourines , recorders, violins, key boards etc. etc..

Who knows we may possibly have our very own Sunshine Band one day !

The idea for SunShine began in 1992 with the dream of one woman - Pearl Smith

By 1996 Pearl and an Egyptian colleague, Dr Amr Taha had founded the SunShine Project. Pearl set up a home in Egypt for the abandoned children of Luxor and founded a trust in the UK to support the project.

In 1999 the SunShine Project became a registered charity in Egypt. The effect was that the UK charity became the funder and the Egyptian charity the service provider. Pearl died from cancer in 2004.
