Paper boat fundraiser for Mary-Ann's Cottage - Caithness
On the 30th January 2009, Joane Kaar will launch her paper boat project - a fundraiser for Mary-Ann's cottage, a living history museum in Caithness Scotland run by volunteers from The Caithness Heritage Trust (a registered Charity no: SCO 19998). As paper boats are sent to her from around the globe, she will document them on her blog. The launch date and theme were inspired by the maiden voyage of the Westland Ship - 30th January 1879 (130 years ago) from Scotland to New Zealand. Mary-Ann's father, William Young was a member of the crew.
