One of the charitable organisations that the committee of the Amici Val Ceno sponsor is Workaid, by subsidising the transport costs from the Rhondda to Workaid depot in Amersham,Bucks, Nr London. Something about our contribution to Workaid,which was developed here in Rhondda at the latter part of 2001,by Joe Cavalli of Treorchy (and san Siro di Bardi).On my return from my annual holiday in Grezzo,Bardi,Italy I was invited to join Joe in his endevours in collecting unwanted sewing machines,typewriters,knitting machines,all sorts of carpentry,mechanical,building and gardening tools for eventual dispatch to various institutions in Africa; also Peru and Romania.
