BEAVERS in Caythorpe and Fulbeck have done their bit to help people in disaster areas.
The youngsters from the 1st Caythorpe and Dukes Covert Beaver Group helped sort through half a million buttons into separate colours as part of an international project managed by the Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven, based in Fulbeck.
The project is Trade Aid, and the buttons are used in tailor and seamstress boxes which are sent to areas which have been hit by a disaster. They are also sent to remote areas to enable individuals to learn a trade and start up a business.
Buttons are sent in by other organisations such as Women’s Institute and the Inner Wheel, as well as Rotary clubs from across the country.
