David Lewin writes how during the Covid Lockdown, when we were all confined to our homes, he spent his time reupholstering an 1850's Throne Chair, as well as their 6 Dining Room chairs. 

''That exercise proved to be great fun - as well as teaching me a practical skill I did not know I had before then. I continued to upholster chairs for friends and when that source dwindled - I mean the chairs, not the friends‚  I turned to Bnai Brith whose members we have been for past 60 years. When Russia invaded Ukraine I resolved to help the Bnai Brith Ukraine Appeal. I suggested to people to learn from professional upholsterers the cost of renewing their chairs and offered to do that work for HALF that price, with all surplus income going to the Ukraine Fund. Sadly, the Ukraine war still continues. I would like now to reach the members of FRS and to tell them about my work, in the hope that my raising funds for Ukraine can continue and grow.''
