PEACEHAVEN WI: Our October meeting incorporated the Annual Meeting and the treasurer and secretary both gave favourable reports on the past year’s activities. The president thanked the committee and many other members for their help and support over the year, and also during the past five years of her term of office. As she is standing down, a ballot was held and Diane Salter was voted in as our new president.
After tea and our ever popular Bring and Buy, we were pleased to welcome Tish Collins, Chief Executive of the ACWW (Associated Country Women of the World) who enlightened us as to where all our donated Pennies for Friendship end up. It was surprising to know that for the year to June 1, £111,000 had been raised to help so many women in many countries to have a better life. Keep donating everyone, it is such a good cause. Looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting on November 1. (Joy Allen).
