It's Carnival Time!

Carnival season will soon be upon us in the UK and once again Jess and Rosa Batten-Stevens from Ottery St Mary will be taking part in all the East Devon Carnivals as a walking pair.

The girls raised a stunning £450 for The Colour of Hope last year, which has not only enabled one of our young people to set up his own grocery store, but also brought emergency medical care to his 3-year-old son Luis, saving his life after he drank bleach at nursery. (Read the full story here.)

Jess and Rosa are hoping to top last year's record and any donations will be very gratefully received. If you'd like to sponsor the girls, please contact The Colour of Hope directly at

View the girls in their winning 2007 carnival costumes here (2008 costumes yet to be revealed)!
