The Durham Shopping Extravaganza - A Success Story

We were absolutely thrilled to receive such a generous donation from the Durham Shopping Extravaganza, which took place in October at Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham. The Durham Shopping Extravaganza commitee have worked so hard to bring in such a huge sum, which was shared between a number of local charities. We are so fortunate to be one of the charities selected to benefit from this year's Extravaganza!

We would like to offer offer a massive thank you to all sponsirs, stal holders, shoppers, volunteers and the organising committee. At DFW, we are planning to use the money to ensure our archive of files from the last century are in good order to allow those who've been adopted in the past through DFW to access their information.
