SPECIAL SANTA SURPRISE ARRIVES IN THE PROMISELAND

Our MoveOne truck, arrived in the PromiseLand last week full of Christmas boxes and goodies from the British School of Warsaw, the Mysiadlo School of Warsaw and the Nowa Iwiczna Schools of Warsaw. The excitement was overwhelming!

Meg and Basia set out at 0700 on Friday morning for their annual trip to the PromiseLand loaded with gifts and surprises. They first visited the Nielep and Toporzyk schools to give gifts from the Mysiadlo and the Nowa Iwiczna schools. We want to be sure to give a special thanks to Michalina Gajewska who organized the Christmas Gift collection. There were so many special treats including sweets, toys and school supplies that it is hard to describe.

The girls were then off to the Nowe Worowo, Bierzwnica and Oparzno schools, to deliver Christmas boxes collected by our British School friends in Warsaw. A special thanks goes to Judy Reynolds and Oonagh Yeo, who organized and collected the money and purchased all these outstanding gifts.

None of this could have happened without the support of MoveOne General Manager - Piotr Piekarowicz and his irreplaceable driver and our friend Bartek Rajewski. Shown in the photos above.

We hope you enjoy the photos of the PromiseLand at Christmas time, and our special Christmas Greetings to you and yours this Christmas season.

MERRY CHRISTMAS
