In the final few weeks before the start of the Olympic and Paralympic Games we decided it made sense for the remaining cushions to be finished at a 'stuffing station' in the London area so they could more easily be transported to athletes and teams who requested them. The Finchley WI, very ably led by Elizabeth Alcock, took on the task and were quickly nicknamed the FINCHLEY FINISHERS. They did an amazing job and ensured that every cushion was stuffed, finished, labelled and delivered in good time.
