written by Samantha Hussey

I started cutting out of a wool jacket I found at the Tŷ Hafan charity shop in Aberdare. It was on their clearance rail so only cost me £1!

youngster’s birthday fundraiser

written by Ellis

My name is Ellis and for my 10th birthday party I planned a pool party for my class in school. As I usually have lots of presents from friends and family for my birthday, I thought it would be a good idea to donate some money instead of having presents this year.
