Subject: RE: Aberfan disaster 40th anniversary - 21 Oct 1966
I was 7 years old at the time. I remember my brother and I packing up a box of our toys to send to the children left behind. I gave them my favourite sooty and sweep glove puppets. My mum asked me if I was sure about giving them. I said yes. I stil remember that. I still makes me cry with sadness at what happened. I hope our toys gave some comfort. God bless their souls.
