Hoping that you all enjoyed time with family and friends over Easter.
This is a new item for us - a newsletter to keep up with whats going on out there!
We would like this to be inclusive and so if you have some news or something you would like to share then please do get in touch via the contact form - the button is at the top of the page - and we will put it into the next newsletter. We hope to have a newsletter published at least once a month or more often if there is more news!!
We are about to receive a box of cotton fabric pieces from a generous supporter so if you think you could make use of some to make the over 10 year old dresses and shorts just let me know!
Recently a huge parcel of dresses and shorts went out to BAKARY SAMBOUYA IN THE GAMBIA where we supported with over 200 dresses and shorts.
I am now getting ready to send out :-
200 + to Northern China
100 to the amazing Facing Africa trust
200 to the gambia to the Tuleeni orphanage
Jacqui has sent dresses to Kenya and to South Africa and plans to take more to her orphanage in jinja, uganda
As you can see we are very busy on your behalf!
Do keep stitching especially those 10 years plus sizes in both shorts and dresses! We are receiving lots of requests for the over 10 year old sizes. Those can be made of course from two pillowslips or cut from fabric or from a duvet cover no longer needed.
Just check that there are no stains or yellow patches and are thoroughly washed and they will be absolutely fine!
Sue Nicholson is exploring and developing new washable/reusable sanitary pads for the teenage girls. If anyone feels they would either like to donate to that mini project - we are buying the belts as they are quite fiddly to make - or to help by making then contact us through the contact page. I know Sue will be delighted to get more underway!
Thanks for reading
