The weather may have been a bit on the chilly side on Saturday 13th April, but that didn't stop staff and volunteers from LinkAble setting themselves up in Jubilee Square ready to spend the day with passers by making woven baskets which were just the right size for one of our chocolate eggs!
All passers by were welcome to join in and many enjoyed learning how to make the baskets before picking some chocolate to go in it. We were delighted to say a quick hello to Cllr Will Forster too!
Whilst some of our volunteers were busy with the crafts, others were kindly holding collecting buckets and chatting with passers by about who LinkAble are and what they do. Service users Emeric, Wilbur and Tom were particularly good at this task!
As well as having fun with the crafts and raising awareness of the charity in the Town, we also raised £445.95 - a fantastic amount of money for LinkAble.
A huge thank you to everyone who gave up some or all of their Saturday to help run this event. We couldn't have done it without you!
