Philippines Typhoon Appeal

This weekend, 16 and 17 November 2013, we’ll be donating all admission takings to the Disasters Emergency Committee Philippines Typhoon Appeal.

The majority of shells we sell in our gift shop come from the Philippines, from a company we’ve known for more than a decade, and people we consider friends. Their factory is to the north, so hasn’t suffered too badly, but family and friends are a source of concern. If you can, do help. The appeal is here.
