Chalford’s Jumble Sale today has made £352.74 so far. There is a bit more to come in from selling unwanted textiles, plus we have some boxes of the best leftovers for the shop. Success. Thanks to all who helped, or spent their money there.
It was lots of hard work, but we have enabled other Stroud folk to help the refugees in Calais, Dunkirk and beyond. And we have also provided lots of Stuff with new homes rather then sending it to landfill.

By the way, the cushion illustrating this post on the website is one made for the Stroud refugees who, as far as I know, have not moved in quite yet.
