At the November 2016 General Meeting, members of the Papercraft Group organised a sales table to sell items they had made in aid of DNRC. This is the charity responsible for fundraising for the development at Stanford Hall. The items on display included beautiful cards and gift boxes which were greatly admired. Everyone could see that outstanding skills were involved. The Group raised almost £100.
