A huge shout out to George Walker, Rosebank Road, for their support today.
The amazing staff at George Walker came with their truck and have taken away our excess desks.
They are hoping to send them up to schools who were effected by Cyclone Gita in the islands.
What a fantastic idea.
Thanks again for your generosity
