A garden party with tents and barbecue for the children from the "Dimcho Debelianov" orphanage is organized by Bernadette and Douglas Leagle Sunday.

The orphanage is located in Bulgaria's Danube city of Silistra. Te charity event is attended by local and State authorities, businessmen, friends of the children as well as 16 British couples, who like the Leagle family have chosen the Silistra area as their place of residency.

An official donation of the British State is going to be given to the orphanage's director during the party. The British couple is planning more charities for other orphanages in the Silistra Region and for the Silistra hospital.

The local Rotary club also organized a charity event for the orphans on Saturday - a lunch and a boat trip on the Danube.

All events are held under the patronage of the Silistra City Hall.
