Stitch in time at­tracts crowds

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PEOPLE IN PICTURES -

ASTALL at­tracted crowds to watch demon­stra­tions of knit­ting and sewing ma­chines.

Workaid vol­un­teers show­cased a range of ac­tiv­i­ties at Amer­sham Ro­tary Day. The char­ity, which is based in Che­sham, tack­les poverty by pro­vid­ing dis­ad­van­taged peo­ple with the tools they need to learn a skilled trade and earn a liv­ing.

Amer­sham Ro­tary Club mem­ber, Peter Mclough­lin, said: "With knit­ted ted­dies and other craft works the Workaid stall at­tracted crowds to watch demon­stra­tions of knit­ting ma­chines and a vintage sewing ma­chine. Sales of hab­er­dash­ery items, plants and tools raised over £600.

Workaid is still in need of vol­un­teers in all ar­eas of its work and any­one with an in­ter­est should call Gen­eral Man­ager John Fox on 01494 775 220.
