I ache to make this work and it is really difficult to explain why this project is so important to me and to the people who will benefit from it. Unless you've got oodles of cash to throw at a charity it is hard to come up with something that is just plain helpful.

In the meantime we are due to receive more baby clothes and some reusable nappies from three other friends and three large piles of reusable sanitary pads from our champion sewers.

Finally, we are due to make an appearance in a newsletter published by one of the wonderful conservancies which will be accepting our suitcases for their local communities.
