WWG Meeting November 2017
We had our last meeting for the year on 23 November 2017 at the Waterloo Lee Valley store.
Carl Durance informed us of the Bravery Beads Program for kids with cancer.
The Bravery Bead Program allows children who wish to participate, the chance to collect a different bead for each procedure or event while visiting the hospital for treatment. The goal of the program is to make a necklace with colourful beads that represent the unique and special journey of a particular child and to make something that they are proud of and want to share with family and friends. Beads are not given as a reward or something to be earned but rather to represent each child’s individual story through treatment.
The woodturning guilds and individuals can assist in making segmented bowls to be given to the children to store their beads. Please contact Paul Newton if you wish to participate to help the kids. Thanks.
