29th June 2009 - Povertee day

Last Friday was a fund-raising day in the library. Members of staff made donations for wearing T-shirts to work and sold home bakes in the foyer to raise money for action aid Povertee day.

It was a great day; sunny and warm to make us very glad to not be in our usual work wear and lots of delightful cakes everywhere. Splendid.

Today we were told that the grand total raised was £167 which is brilliant. There was also plenty of cake left over for our tea-breaks this morning which is the main thing.

One of my enquiries today is about telephone numbers. The customer wishes to know what Orkney telephone numbers looked like in 1940.
