Rag rugging group baking cakes and making rugs for Gambian cause
A RAG RUGGING collective is hosting an exhibition of rugs to raise money for a Gambian charity.
The 'We Are Not Doormats Group' is planning to display its rugs at the Women's Institute hall in St Just between Friday and Sunday and is asking for donations in support of Rug Aid, an organisation that helps blind people in The Gambia make rag rugs to earn money.
Diane Cox, who started the rag rugging network seven years ago, is hoping to have a successful two days and thinks the charity is a great cause.
"We like to support it [Rug Aid]," said Mrs Cocks. "We think it's a very good rug group. We just want to give people a pleasant experience.

"We have loads of rugs – the whole hall is going to be transformed."
A rug raffle will also be on offer, with proceeds from the sale planned to be used to purchase craft materials for a women's refuge.
Mrs Cox and her rug group are also offering a vintage afternoon tea over the two days, and said there could be as many 30 cakes on sale for visitors to tuck into.
Last year the team managed to raise over £100, and Mrs Cox is hoping to match that this year.
The event takes place at the WI hall, St Just, from June 7 to 9 between 10.30am and 4pm.
