Handmade in Clapham: A total of £1,083 has been raised for St James’s Church by Handmade in Clapham. The ladies would like to thank everyone who has supported them over the last few months by buying their goods. Their stall at Clapham Street Fair proved hugely popular. They will be getting their heads together shortly to decide what to make next. In the meantime, please save old t-shirts for the group as they will be turned into rag rugs next summer.
