I belong to two clubs. The Naenae MENZ Shed and the Guild of Woodworkers Wellington. For the past few months the Members of both have been making toys for needy kids at Christmas. These were presented to the Salvation Army yesterday. We have a great relationship with the Sallies who ensure the toys go to the right homes. The third picture shows them receiving the products of our combined labours.
The MENZ Shed guys contributed 20 wooden trucks of varying shapes and sizes. We are all either old-ish or infirm-ish but like the idea of helping young kids who may not normally get much for Christmas presents.
The Guild Guys and their wives/partners made all the other toys. They made a range of things from wooden stoves, aeroplanes, a rocking horse and knitting to name just a few.
