This was the first bootfair of our season. Jean, Linda and Chris (Linda’s husband) took two cars to the Longfield Road site in Tunbridge Wells. The weather forecast had not been good, but the rain held off and there were quite a lot of people looking for bargains. The pitch was right at the far end of the site, so not the best, but sales were steady and they made £110 for the ALC.
After the bootfair, Linda and Chris went home with Jean for lunch and also a slideshow of the photos that Jean and Tina had taken on their recent visit to Aquinoe Learning Centre in Kitale. Since Linda had been unable to undertake the visit to Kenya, the photos made everything much more real for her, and she felt she ‘knew’ the school, teachers and pupils much better.
