Last week we were lucky enough to meet Pam O’ Garr from the Rotary club of Como, when she came in to have her sewing machine fixed. I learned that Pam uses her machine to sew items for disabled children attending the Carson Street School.
Carson Street School is the state’s only Education Support Primary School, and it educates students whose needs are such that they are not presently being integrated into the regular school system. All require extensive therapy and educational services. Students have a wide variety of medical conditions which are handled sensitively by the nursing staff.
The members of the Rotary club of Como meet at the school at regular intervals to sew items the children need, i.e. feeding aprons, bandanas, swimming bags and all the things which are costly for the parents, many of whom are struggling with the expense of having one or more children in the school.
They also hold craft stalls, the next one will be on 21st December this year, selling a whole range of items to raise money for the school and the children.
Pam and all of the other people helping this amazing school are connected in some way to the Rotary Club of Como and are all volunteers.
So we figured that our extremely talented customers might like to help out and sew some amazing items to sell at the next craft stall, we will act as a collection point for any items you’d like to drop off. I will be posting a list soon with all the things they are currently making for the craft stall but basically any item that can be sold is a welcome donation to the cause.
I look forward to seeing you all soon, and I hope you can support us here at Bestway to make a contribution to these children’s lives.
