IT IS supposed to be the happiest day of your life. And one Hampshire couple have chosen to spread their happiness by holding a charity event in place of their wedding reception. After tying the knot at Southampton Register Office, on March 1, Louise Abbott and Ryan Hewitt, from Totton, will be holding a charity weekend at The White Horse, Netley Marsh. The couple hope their big day will raise £4,000 for the Round Table Children’s Wish, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.
Louise, 32, an accounts manager for web design company, Studio Republic, said: “We didn’t want any wedding presents and we thought it would be a nice idea to do something different and to help children in the area…. Ryan, 37, a network engineer for Aruba Networks, said: “Lou and I are the sort of people who like to get out and do this sort of thing and it’s a great charity. We’re lucky, our daughter is happy and healthy but for some children, that’s not the case. I’m really looking forward to all of it.” MORE
This is the kind of generosity to which we are all called. I pray God will complete the work he is doing in their lives and bring them to the fullness of his love.
