A West Wickham charity shop in aid of people with sight and hearing problems has been inviting shoppers to unveil their inner pompom maker.

Residents have been popping into the Sense shop in High Street to make pompoms to be weaved into a huge tapestry.

It will then be taken around the country to raise awareness of sight and hearing loss.

Marie Stone, shop manager, said: “People with both sight and hearing difficulties often use other senses such as touch to connect with the world around them. By making a pompom, you can tune into your own sense of touch.”
