I've gone, shuffled off to share the Tart's blog - you'll find me there now, when she lets me near the computer...

A Good Cause

Bit of promotion, here, for a local event that needs your support...

10 am - 4 pm
Fundraising Day
at 6-8 Canongate
in Jedburgh
in aid of
Chernobyl Childrens Lifeline
tea and cakes (of course)
tombola bric a brac,
a clothing sale, as well as treatments like
reiki, Indian head massage and
neck and shoulder massages
Plus information on CCLL and what's involved in hosting
young children from Chernobyl for a few weeks each summer.
This summer 14 children from Belarus stayed with Borders families for a month. They all live within the area contaminated by the disaster and a month in the clean air of the Borders boosts their damaged immune systems to a huge extent. Host families participate in events with the children, and ensure they leave with suitcases of clothes and other items to help them once back home. This is the fifth year that volunteers have hosted children - money raised through events such as the one above helps to fund the associated costs.
