Skills – We need your help!

Please let Sue know what skills you can offer, so we know who to ask for help.

Maybe you could approach your Rotary club and ask them to organise an annual event for us, or you could have a cake sale at your home, or maybe your know someone else who belongs to a club who can organise an event for us?

Perhaps you have family or friends who could help?
