My dear friend Clare Battersby, aka ‘Fairy Clare’ is a true local hero and has been recognised as such. As a working artist she has to fundraise to get things done. I created a tea towel for her that was somewhat rushed for the deadline but was hugely popular and for such a great cause people are happy to pay money and have something they can use for years, remembering they supported a favourite local icon. Clare fundraised to attend a conference on Dance Education for Children in Copenhagen in 2015. Great success as she continues to inspire, educate, and love the children in our community.
