  • Sale at West End Festival in Glasgow We would like to say a huge thanks to Keith Moore from River Clyde Homes.  For the third year running Keith has taken a stall at the West End Festival to sell retro ceramics etc., that havebeen donated to Starter Packs which we cannot use.  This year Keith raised £185.00 for us.  The money will be used to purchase items in short supply.
