My dear friend Winsome has done an amazing job over many months with her sewing machine. She has turned out more than 400 cloth bags, used by the children for carrying books and, well just about anything they turn their minds to actually. And she stitched up more than 150 cloth bags used as pencil cases. Amazing really. Often while watching television. How she does both at the same time I will never know. And when things got crazy while all of the final planning was coming together, there she was offering a meal or helping with the packing. Or… well, anything really. Some of the reward of doing all this lies in the great community of friends and contacts who join in and support the effort this way. She did not want to show these off by the way but we all wanted to recognise the sterling work she has done in the background.
