Members from Inner Wheel Clubs around District Nine, including Banbury, spent a day sewing for Sierra Leone, creating 400 sleeping bags for the charity EducAid.

Duvets and sheets were donated to the Banbury branch to be stitched into sleeping bags for children at free schools run by the charity and those orphaned by the Ebola virus.

They also received a donation of printed labels, showing the Inner Wheel logo, to attach to the completed sleeping bags from Ooh La Label.

Linda Clarke, international service chairman for District 9, said Inner Wheel members were grateful for the support they had received.
