shuktara, London Marathon 2016


Big shuktara smiles!

ao has been friends with the Kolkata based charity, shuktara for a long time.  As ao's Emma is running in the forthcoming London Marathon she has chosen to fundraise for this incredible cause.  

In Emma's words:

'I initially heard about David Earp, shuktara’s founder a few years ago through my passion for textiles.  I bought one of his stunning bedspreads and was totally moved by the story behind it. It certainly was no ordinary quilt! I was moved to hear that David was using his talent for design to support a charity for abandoned, disabled children in India.  Please take a look at their wonderful website that explains the shuktara story so much better than I can. '

Without the tremendous compassion, courage and love of David and the whole shuktara team, these children wouldn’t have a future. If anyone reading this can help in any way here is the just giving link.
