Arty Farty Christmas Crafts, 1st Belle Digs for Denman & Love from Tea Pigs

Blue Belles gathered for their December meeting to celebrate all things giving and gorgeous in the holiday season.
Laura P 2 & Deborah crack open their Arty Farty craft kits

Our sisters from Cam City WI, Jo and Ruth, helped to guide our hands and hearts via their new business, Arty Farty Tea Party, to craft wreaths and decorations to help brighten up the S wards of Addenbrooke’s, which helps support those suffering with eating disorders or substance misuse issues.

Deborah & Laura S examine their Arty Farty craft kits further

The first of many collaborations for the ward, the Blue Belles have proudly adopted the S Wards and look forward to bringing colour and magic to the likes of all of the service users that spend time between their walls.

The Belles in the full throws of crafting bliss!

This year has been one of great achievement and fun for the Belles and the night was no exception! We were SO very proud to host the first draw for a Dig for Denman bursary, composed of cash we’ve made from selling our allotment produce (in wholefood AND jam/preserve form), to raise the cash to send a Belle to our very own Denman College. Lucky lady on the night, Kelly, was absolutely THRILLED to have been chosen and we look forward to hearing back of her time at our favourite WI learning establishment!

Last but certainly not least, we Belles were gifted a HUGE selection of delicious teas from the fabulous Tea Pigs
Katie revels in the Tea Pig goodness!
As a thank you for the kind gifting, we snapped photos of ourselves with the delightful brews and plastered them all over our Twitter – Tea Pigs retweeted and were much obliged for the opportunity to wet our whistles!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all who came along to be a part of the Blue Belle buzz in 2014 – we have had such a FANTASTIC year and look forward to taking part in all of the exciting times ahead in the WI’s centenary year!
