56 Dresses Leave for Uganda!

How amazing! Not only are there enough dresses to send to Uganda, but local sewers managed to exceed the original 50 dress target. 56 was the final count! Against all her expectations, Gill managed to somehow stash them in her bag!

We are amazed at the support we ve received from local heroes like Sue George, Angela Walmsley and Dilys Caswell (amongst many others) who have been so moved by the plight of the recipients that they set to work avidly determined to make as many dresses as possible - and to keep making them! We have been bowled over by the numbers of folk who have made them either at Space to Sew or at home and who have taken Dress a Girl to their hearts. Thank you!

Gill Castle, who represents Omushana here in Shrewsbury, has promised to feed back to us on her return - and to bring photos of the girls in their dresses if she can.

Safe journey Gill! We can't wait to see the photos...
