Birthday Celebration -

Celebrating 56 years of friendship and fundraising. Members, together with friends from 'Mother Club' Windsor and Eton IW, enjoyed a superb Champagne Afternoon Tea at the home of President Anne. The selection of sandwiches and cakes was deserving of a Michelin Star. Anne was ably assisted by sous chefs Edith and Sonja, and our thanks and appreciation go to all three.


Presentation to D.A.S.H. -

President Ann introduced our Speaker, Caron Kipping, Community Engagement Officer for D.A.S.H.  Caron has worked for The D.A.S.H. Charity for 12 years, after starting initially as a volunteer. 1 in 4 Women are affected by Domestic Abuse and at least 130,000 children & young people in the UK live in households with a high risk of Domestic Abuse.   The D.A.S.H. Charity has been supporting victims since 1976 & each year reaches out to over 1000 individuals.  There are 3 local Refuges, for victims from anywhere in the UK, offering a safe & supportive environment. Edith presented Caron with a cheque for £200 along with toiletries donated by members.
