82 year-old Brian wanted to keep himself busy during lockdown so started making Reindeer Baskets and selling them with all the proceeds going to Cancer Research and St. Lukes Hospice.
Aided in part by his daughter Caroline, Brian has been able to make one reindeer an hour with timber mouldings and glue donated by Palladium Building Supplies in Kingsbridge.

They have proved to be so popular that Brian and Caroline have a backlog of over 240 reindeers to be made before Christmas with Caroline having to take time off work just to fulfil the outstanding reindeer baskets which means unfortunately that no new orders can be taken.
