Default Charitable works.

When I can, I give some time to a cancer research charity. I make things for them such as this football practice goal ( You guys would call it soccer !)
I started off with a sheet of 15mm ply cut into three ( they need to be able to take it apart and carry it around.
I fitted a frame round it with a ratchet strap to hold it all together.
To hold it upright I fitted braces to the back.
I put holes of various sizes and scores beside them.
All painted shocking pink !

Any work done for charity is time and money well spent. Good job, Roger.
