Questions at TisburyThirumaran visits the UK to meet friends and supporters of TRUST Children's Homes

Generous friends and supporters provided the flight tickets and then looked after Thirumaran and his teenage son on a two and a half week trip to Scotland and then England.  It was lovely to spend time with them and to show them around.  We hope they enjoyed it too!

Thirumaran was able to meet and thank many friends and supporters at three organised presentations and many smaller meals and meetings.  Visitors to TRUST from as long ago as 2002 (through 'Teaching & Projects Abroad', before the Children's Home) up to GAP year students planning visits in September 2018 and in January 2019, as well as visitors from many years in between, were able to meet Thirumaran and catch up on news of TRUST Children.

There were tourist and cultural experiences including a visit to Cambridge, a walk around London and a visit to St Paul's Cathedral, a trip on the London Eye, Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, a classical concert and a visit to the beach with a swim in the (cold!) sea.  Their hosts in Scotland introduced them to their Farm, Rowing and Table Tennis (amongst many other things) and there was another Farm Tour around a quite different farm in Dorset as well as a visit to a Tamil School in London.

Thirumaran was able to spend a fascinating day meeting the International Development Team at the NHS Blood Transfusion Centre in Bristol, exchanging ideas about raising awareness and encouraging blood donation.

Thirumaran and Nannan had a very busy time!
