Make a dress for a Kenyan child

Starting September 2014: Make a dress for a Kenyan child at our new after school club.

As part of our ongoing links with Jamhuri High in Nairobi, Miss Ellis will be running an after-school club making children's dresses out of pillow cases.

The students will have fun, develop skills and help a child in Kenya.

The Textiles club will be running after School from the 18th of September, but first your help is needed. Each dress is made from a pillow case, new or used. They can be any colour with or without pattern, all are required.

PLEASE BRING ANY UNWANTED PILLOW CASES TO TEXTILES IN THE T-BLOCK. Thank you.

Miss Ellis says:
"I wanted to contribute in some way and support our link with Jamhuri High. This year's Puggly club was such a success and I felt students would enjoy this project just as much. We have made some test dresses already and the results look great – we already have a pile of pillow cases which have been donated but need more to allow all the students interested to get involved. The more we are given the more we can make!"

Make a dress for Kenya Club: Every Thursday, 2.50 -4.00pm
