We have had a busy Spring with a number of events going on. We were delighted to welcome over 80 guests to our fundraising Fashion Show at the Doubletree by Hilton Stratford upon Avon with clothes provided by Gemini Woman.
The following weekend we worked hard to support the Rotary Stratford Mrathon, we felt as though we had run several ourselves by the time we had seved all the runners!
Our May speaker was Sue Jordan, a Trustee with the Military Wives Choirs Foundation. It was fascinating to hear about their history and future plans for the choirs.
Stratford members and guests enjoyed their 72nd Fellowship Lunch at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel recently. The speaker, Frances Benton, talked entertainingly about her 'passion for pearls', and bought many examples with her. All proceeds from items sold go to support a school for children with autism in Scotland.
Lots of focus on international charities at the beginning of the year with a very successful Hunger Lunch followed by a Club Meeting where the speakers were the Ingrams from the Chinthowa Development Trust. Their talk regarding how they had set up their charity and the difference it was making was truly inspirational. The Cub was able to pass on a large number of knitted items.
The District 6 International Charity is the Lemon Tree Trust - transforming refugee camps, one garden at a time.
The National President, Enid Law, has chosen Riding for the Disabled for her charity.
