Mayfield primary school
After seeing the advert in ucam.adverts.giveaway I really want to do something to help Mayfield Primary School get up and running again. Unfortunately, I don't think I have any of the stuff they're likely to need (more information about donations is available in the Cambridge News) -- I feel as though I should have, because I have such a lot of stuff kicking around the house, but it's just not the right sort of stuff really.

On the other hand if any of you do have anything which would be useful to the school & which you're happy to part with, I'm willing to volunteer the use of my car for picking up and dropping off, within reason (and 'reason' includes Oxford and London, as I have plenty of other good excuses to go to either & I'm free next w/e & it's only a 1.5hr drive). I mean, I already have this gas-guzzling environment-buggering nightmare, I may as well at least try to use it for the Forces of Good.

Since I really don't have any Stuff to contribute I'm planning to make a cash donation, it won't be very big as I don't have very much but I guess anything helps. If anybody else feels moved to do the same & wants to co-ordinate with me so we can write them just one cheque, give me a shout by email, please. (Email preferred for stuff-offering as well.)

Will it help any if I look pathetic and tell sob stories about how upset all my old teachers are, and how my little brother's been relocated to Arbury primary school?

Seriously, actually, huge thank yous to *anyone* who does *anything* to help out, it means a lot to me and everyone else who's connected to the school.

I heard about this last night, from friends whose daughters go there. Judy was due to take a bag of balls of wool and if I were closer I'd be giving the same, and a load of bits of material. Not much use to me sitting in a box, but useful for arts and crafts or sewing.
