“Threading Dreams Exhibition”

Exhibition of textiles and embroidery from The Sreepur Village, Bangladesh and also from the rural areas. All this beautiful work is created in adverse poverty by amazing women. There will be hand made cards, silk scarves and other gifts for sale. All proceeds will go to the 600 children and 150 destitute mothers who live at Sreepur, plus the Street Children project we run on the railway, the river banks and at Dhaka airport. Millions of street children live literally on the streets in Bangladesh. Ruby Porter MBE (trustee) will be in attendance each day from 10am-4pm to talk about her voluntary work in Bangladesh over the last 27 years.
