Tracey Dennis, founder of Eastbourne’s heavenly haberdashery – Owl and Sewing Cat – hosted a free bunting sewing experience in aid of St Wilfrid’s Hospice “Care for a Cuppa” charity appeal at The Sussex Over 50’s Lifestyle Show on stand on 30 and 31 May.

During the Buntingathon event at The Sussex Over 50’s Lifestyle Show in Eastbourne, volunteers made a total of 128 flags which equates to 48 metres (157 feet) of bunting.

Owl and Sewing Cat welcomed visitors, Age Concern members and even Caroline Ansell, who conquered her fears at the sewing machine!

“St Wilfrid’s Hospice greatly appreciates the support of the local community, and we are delighted that so many people have helped in producing this bunting. A huge thank you to the Owl and Sewing Cat for organising the event and for donating the bunting to the Hospice, it will certainly make a welcome colourful addition to our events.” - Christine Clark, Community Support Co-ordinator at St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

St Wilfrid’s Hospice will now be able to decorate quite a bit of space for their Care for a Cuppa appeal fundraising event.
