What a wonderful Saturday we had at Workaid’s Crafts Open Day! We were happy to welcome so many enthusiastic visitors to the Old Boot Factory for a day of crafts, tours of the factory and tea!
Thank you to our lovely artists for showcasing some of the activities on offer at Workaid, such as Mary Pomeroy’s Drawing and Painting, Paula Watkin’s ‘Textile Treasures’ and Marilyn Pipe’s ‘Textiles with Mixed Media’. We had two new volunteer sign ups as well as sign ups to the Workaid e-Newsletter. It was great to see so many people interested in the work that we do and want to be a part of it!
We would also like to say thank you to all our volunteers who continue to do such incredible work on the refurbishment and packing of tools and equipment. Without the support of our volunteers, crafts people and donors, Workaid would not be able to have the impact it does on thousands of people across the UK and East Africa.
