A Quick Plug
Bloggees may wish to be aware of a new Merse based charity :Cerebral Palsy Africa which is one of a very few local organisations working in Africa and I suspect the only one whose focus is children. It is the brain child of the Wife, is supported by a group of Border based trustees and builds on work that she did in Africa during our diplomatic interlude and more recently during our Third Age. A number of local organisations have been very supportive-University of the Third Age (appropriately enough) Guilds-most recently in Coldstream and Berwick, Berwick Rotary and the Berwick Parish Church which adopted CPA as its Christmas Charity.
