Have you lamps, teacups, plates, mugs, vases, porcelain figurines, photo frames, or odd little bits and pieces lying around the house that you want to get rid of? Why not give them to us? This summer, we are teaching the children in Drishane Castle how to recycle, repaint or remake household objects. If you have this kind of small bric-a- brac and you want rid of it, we would gladly take it. We plan to sell the recycled products to raise money for our School Book Fund.
