Yesterday someone kindly left these two discs in my letterbox - many thanks, they will be welcome in either Tonga or the Cook Islands.

One of the boys at the Shed suggested that reading glasses would be welcome in Tonga and Shed members have generously donated over 20 pair for me to take to Niuatoputapu in December. If Pacific neighbours supporters can help with unwanted spectacles any donations will be much appreciated - please drop them into the Shed, or call me on 479 1808 and I will collect them.
