To brighten the foster-children’s life with new impressions the “Katran” skating-rink administration and “The Happy Child” Charity Foundation invited these children to skate.

In November, 2011 the pupils of Zaporozhye educational and rehabilitation centre “Dzherelo” ("Spring"), a group of children from the comprehensive boarding school No 4. as well as children from Zaporozhye needy and large families visited the skating-rink. The skating-lovers were given nice skates and the keys from comfortable and spacious fitting-rooms, and what is the most important – free time. And the children had a wonderful time skating.

“We are glad that our children can have such an opportunity. One can see that spending time like this brings the children a lot of joy and pleasure”, - the director of studies in educational activities of Boarding school No 4 Galina Aleksandrovna Kruts considers.

To sum it up, more than 80 children who need special care and attention have visited the skating-rink this month. The children have got an enormous amount of pleasure, positive emotions and will keep good memories for a long time.

The Staff of “The Happy Child” Charity Foundation express their gratitude to the “Katran” skating-rink administration. We wish you a good luck and nice visitors!
