This year’s Bodgers’ Ball at Hawkchurch on the Devon-Dorset border came with sunshine and celebrity endorsement.
Technology enthusiast, scientist, writer and broadcaster of TV programmes such as What the Romans did for us, Adam Hart-Davis attended the Ball in another of his many guises, that of amateur bodger. A real gentleman, as genuinely delightful in real life as he is on TV, Mr Hart-Davis was happy to add his stamp of approval to Tool for Self Reliance’s work in Africa, as he bought a supply of woodworking tools from our stall.
We had a great weekend, raising over £2,000 split equally between Tools for Self Reliance and the Bristol group, where it will be added to funds for our next project. This is almost double last year’s total and a record for this event!
