The Alice Gleinster Foundation memorial web site. In loving memory of Alice Glenister 1984 - 2003

FIRST TRIP TO THAILAND

Mary, Malcolm and Tom together with Chloe made a trip to Thailand in September 2003 to see what The Alice Glenister Orphanage Fund (as a precursor to the Foundation) could achieve - which had collected over £8,000.00.

With the help of the Thai family Ponsamboon, who rented the rooms to Alice and Chloe when they were working as volunteers, we visited the orphanage school and established that there was a need for a new girls' kindergarten dormitory block. (Click here to see The First Alice Home)

In addition, we asked if there was anything else we could provide, which resulted in a mammoth shopping excursion to Tesco Lotus in Ayutthaya, to purchase a miscellany of goods amounting to just over £1,000.00 (see list).

The orphanage school were also looking to refurbish their kindergarten toilet and shower block which was looking rather sad, and we gladly agreed to pay for this at just below £1,000.00.

Here are some images of the block before and after the refurbishment.
