A Day in the Life of the Dove and the Dolphin

Leave home at 9am laden with Sawaf's rugs, candles, olive wood dove brooches from Bethlehem and potted narcissi/tulips which Sue and I planted up in the Autumn for D and D.
To Endacott House, Chagford for coffee morning organised by Kristin Charlesworth. Great spirit and in Chagford D and D is privileged to have strong support. Find a card of apology from old friend and patient, Mary Sharpe, with a cheque for £25 inside. Good discussions with folk who are deeply interested in seeing the nakba end. Over £200 was raised. Well done Kristin, Richard and all of you. £8 pays the UNWRA school fee for one child for one year.
To Susan and David Tucker, Blagdon Farm Holidays, Ashwater (nr Holsworthy) to pick up thirty cellular blankets. Converting to duvets! Tapped 'blankets, charity and Devon' into Google and we came up! And thanks Sue and David from Sue and David.
Home by 3pm and then Sue sets to work packing these last items ready for the container which comes to Teignmouth on Monday 8 March. The voyage continues.
