Karen Booker: April 2015
The 2015 GAP Recycled Fashion Show at Alton Methodist Church was a fun and successful event, with Casual, Smart and Special outfits modelled and sold from the clothes donated, followed by a bargain sale next morning with coffee and homemade cakes.
Organisers Judy Nicholls and Karen Booker appreciate the willingness and humour of all who took part: friendships formed and laughter shared is a key part of this event! £2778-10 has been raised, with Water Aid and the local Community Hospital being the causes chosen to support. Karen spoke of the compassionate palliative care given at Alton Community Hospital to 2 church members recently: the donated funds will go towards furnishing a Friends' and Relatives' Room there. She also spoke of the Show's aim for Women to support Women in Water Aid's campaign to provide toilets in countries where rough ground is all that is available, making women vulnerable to molestation and rape, and girls missing school when menstruating rather than have no privacy for their personal care.
