Did that get anyone's attention? I hope it did!
I am trying to help raise some money for a local school in a deprived area who want to take a group of children who have been invited to Boston to visit and work with MIT and Harvard. This isn't my children's school but Daisy attends their free Coder Dojo sessions each month, where children can learn CAD, programming, laser cutting, 3d printing, drone flying, lego robotics and more. I know this isn't sewing, but I think some of you would agree that it is brilliant to help the girls and boys at the school to develop science and engineering skills.
I would like to share the link for fund raising, and anyone who donates 50p or more will be rewarded by a fabric postcard made by me. I haven't time to make a raffle quilt, but I thought this idea might raise a tiny bit. You'll need to PM me or email me to tell me that you've donated though, as I won't know otherwise.
This is the link to donate,
And this is a bit about the project...
We are students from Beamont Collegiate Academy in Warrington. Our school is a centre of Excellence for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We are the only high school in the UK to hold the prestigious STEM assured quality mark.
However, our school is in one of the most deprived areas in the country.

Donated Katy but no postcard required, you are busy enough. Hope it works out for the pupils.

Thanks everyone, your donations are really much appreciated, the school are thrilled with the support. I will send you a postcard, cos I did promise, but I must finish my bag for the bag swap first, so that's a compromise!
