Caroline Bratton-Hughes, the manager of Oxfam on Oxford street and a Baker Street urchin, said: I would like to thank the team of both actors and volunteers for their help in making this possible.
It has been a lot of fun and well worth the effort.
Its also helped raise awareness of the need for mosquito nets and the training Oxfam provide for using them.
It’s good to give nets, but using them properly is what saves lives.
