The Muthoot Plaza, Trivandrum hosted a Cookie Baking Day on 17th December 2008 to entertain
the children of Marion Play Home. Kerala Tourism magazine wrote in its January 2009 issue, the roof-top of
the hotel came alive with the sound of music and laughter at the Bake a cookie, make a smile event. We thank
the owners of Muthoot Plaza and the General Manager, Mr. Gulam Samadani who deserve special mention as they
arrange a variety of events for Marion Play Home.
Nicky George from Rochdale, UK, recently organised a fund raising
project with Saira George for the children at Marion Play Home. They
organised a team of about eight people (including their parents) to
run a half-marathon. They ran the 'Norway Midnight Half-marathon' at
Tromso in the artic circle, where the sun doesn't set during
summertime. Saira finished the race in 2 hours and 19 minutes. Nicky
and Saira visited Marion Play Home recently and gave us a cheque for
nearly £2500.00. We all enjoyed their visit and they have further
promised to continue to raise awareness about disabled children. We
greatly appreciate their kind gesture and wish them well.
Rev. Happy Jacob and the secretary Mr Biben John of St George Orthodox
Church in Manchester were very supportive of the project for which we
are very grateful.
