SUPPORTING THE CHARLOTTE STRAKER ISOLATION APPEAL

The Crafty Women in Corbridge have been discussing how to support our Isolation Unit Appeal, and have decided to sell their beautifully hand made items on Facebook and our website in aid of the fundraising appeal.

Please scroll down the page for photos, descriptions and prices for each item.

If you would like to buy an item, please email angela.jones@charlottestraker.org.uk. Angela will forward you the link to pay and will organise delivery.

Thank you to the Crafty Women for supporting us in this way!
