April Meeting

Ruby Porter MBE told us about her work at Sreepur Village, Bangladesh.
The village houses over 500 babies and children and 140 destitute women. They are provided with a loving environment, food, clothing, education and vocational training.
Ruby brought with her a wonderful selection of hand woven and embroidered items to raise money for the village. In the photograph she is holding a scarf hand woven in the village from natural fibres and dyed with natural dyes.
We can help in a small way by donating threads and needles. Please bring what you have to our meeting in May.
There are lovely pictures of Sreepur Village on their website   There is also the opportunity to help by donating money.
