All South West and Channel Islands regional clubs were represented at our latest meeting in Taunton. We had some inspirational speakers including Clare Gollop who is the Strategic Knowledge and Insight Leader on Trafficking , Devon and Cornwall Police and 2 ladies who represent our organisation at the UN
Club members from the South West Region came together for a development day which was very enjoyable. It’s always good to exchange ideas and views.
This is the day to encourage everyone to read a book or give one away to somebody to read for themselves. Education is the key to ending world poverty.
Friends and club members came together at President Gillian’s annual Fairtrade coffee morning on 25th February at the President’s lovely home. Money raised that morning also went to the Macmillan Nurses so £170 will be shared between the 2 charities. Many thanks for all the cake donations and help from members and to all the people that supported the morning.

It’s always good to meet up with other clubs in our region and celebrate a wonderful milestone. The Manor by the Lake was exquisite in beautiful surroundings with a wonderful meal and speaker to follow.
