Alton Webteam: January 2016
Saturday 30 April 2016
Watch my lips..... they have now firmed a circular oh-oh..... having written my article about no more Fashion Shows, along came Fabienne at the end of our November GAP service and spoke of continuing the work in Cameroon, to train girls in sewing so they could set up independent businesses and face an alternative to domestic abuse or prostitution.
'Women supporting Women' was always the aim behind the Fashion Shows, so, with your help, I have committed to raising £1000-00 for the purchase of sewing machines.
Judy and I will be holding a Sale of Pre-loved Ladies' Clothing on Saturday 30 April 2016.
It will take place in our church with afternoon tea available, and free advice on alterations, accessories and colour complementing.
We will be collecting and pricing clothes straight away, so do consider an early Spring clear out, particularly items for spring and summer.
I am happy to collect items if you contact me.
Thank you for your continuing enthusiasm and support!
