Delma from Siblings Together emailed me this week to say that one of the quilts shipped from abroad had incurred a customs charge of £44. Siblings Together cannot afford to pay these charges for the quilt and we are both concerned that more charges may come along as quilts arrive in the UK. We are hoping to be able to reclaim the charges but the position is not clear as yet.
To donate, you start at Siblings Together and click on the piggy bank on the home page which takes you to a BT (British Telecommunications) donation website. You do not have to register and the process is as quick as buying fabric online (you see how I am trying to guilt you into doing this).
If any of you are able to help Siblings Together out with a donation, however big or small, I would love it if you would leave a comment on this post so that Delma and I know who to thank. Delma and I have already been blown away by the overwhelming generosity of the quilting community towards this cause.
