On Wednesday we had a handicraft evening with Ali Tillcock who showed us how to make a Finnish star using just 6 thin strips of card and glue. It was really good fun and we all ended up with some remarkably beautiful stars which will be decorating our homes at Christmas. An example is shown below.  

Wendy Pinker also brought along some jewellery to sell which is made in Nepal, the proceeds of which go towards the funding of the clinic for children with thalassaemia.
