This is the project we have supported for the last couple of years to help vulnerable children in Africa. Pat Chase, who visits the Project at least once a year, is hoping to join us at the August meeting and the following is a list of items that would be most useful. As they have very few small children teenage sizes would be the best, ie 12/13 years as African teenagers are very slight.
Underpants Used spectacles
(Clothes/underwear can be good condition secondhand)
Please bring your donations to the August meeting or give to one of the members of the Committee.
We had a very productive morning learning and perfecting flower arrangements suitable for the individual competition at the Group Meeting later in June – see News and Views.
We had a very enjoyable, interesting and amusing meeting on13th April. Our speaker was Lorraine Stanton and her talk was entitled “The sausage stuffed with TLC”. She told us about her life as a Rare Breeds Farmer and her passion for Gloucester Old Spot Pigs and their meat. She then demonstrated how to make sausages with a portable sausage-making machine, explaining as she went along about the ingredients that make a very good sausage. She finished by tying the sausages into a traditional string. Unfortunately she has had to sell the farm and her sausage making business but is still very passionate about good sausages!
A few photos from the meeting.
The Union Jack was to support her view that we should only eat British produce.
