If you use Twitter, you may already have seen the awful outcome of an electrical fire at the workshop of @AndyWoodturner, (Andy Coates).
The pictures below show some of the damage sustained on the 20th December.

Andy is a highly regarded craftsman and also serves as Chairman of the Association of Woodturners of Great Britain.
In these pressing times when simply everything seems to be bad news, I would like to forward a link for a page where you can donate a little money if you wish, to help Andy restore his shop and get back to the craft he loves. Please give a little if you can, (maybe hold off that expensive cappuccino for one day?) and give Andy a boost before Christmas.
The JustGiving page has been set up by Siobhan Hoffman and is here.
Thanks!
