Help Save Mohammad from Execution

Mohammad, an Edinburgh grandfather on death row for blasphemy in Pakistan, is in a critical condition. He was shot by a prison guard and remains at risk of further violence.

And don’t forget Freegle and Freecycle, as well as events like Swishing (clothes swapping) to pick up some totally ‘new’, totally free stuff
  • Discover how to make: once you can sew, or…

Earth Friendly Gift Ideas – Don’t Worry, Bee Happy!

Here’s the link to The British Beekeepers Association’s Adopt a Beehive page.
