Lighting candles for peace.

David spoke to the Totnes Peace Group about the voyage after showing the video made by Steve Carroll and Phil Ireland and playing a short excerpt from the sound recordings he made in Gaza. A good discussion followed. About 50 folk were present in spite of the Mediterranean evening outside. The local Palestine Solidarity Campaign Group were represented. Peter Neumann's scented and beautiful candles that he made for the Dove and the Dolphin were available for the first time. Donations in excess of £4.50 were invited for these to help our funds. They proved popular and with other donations £156 were raised. Thank you to Jane King, Helen Chessum, Fuad and others for inviting the D and D to speak, to fly and to swim.
