Friendship, Twine and A Band

01 Feb

Friendship February

Gorgeous coloured twine for the garden seen in a Falmouth shop today.

As a birthday treat for the lovely Mr S, we went to see a fabulous band, Falmouth Soul Sensation, who were playing a Benefit concert in aid of Cornwall Hugs Grenfell. This charity, formed by a Cornish resident after the Grenfell fire tragedy, gathers ‘one week’ pledges from holiday-home owners in Cornwall to give Grenfell survivors and bereaved families, as well as firefighters, the hope of a holiday. At least 500 people have been supported so far. Local businesses help too supplying ice creams or boat trips, free visits to attractions and cream teas. Those who couldn’t offer such things have paid towards the transport to bring families here. A lot of people have been made very happy by this offer of friendship and support from Cornish folk.

    That twine looks like a very good idea. I am currently tying up my toms with long pieces of grass, believe it or not!

      Probably more eco-friendly and certainly a lot cheaper – that box was £21! 🙂

    What a wonderful way to support the people affected by the Grenfell tragedy.

      Esme, who started the charity, is just wonderful! Such a lot of organisation needed and the biggest heart ever to have come up with the idea. 🙂
