Fund Raising Lunch

Tangy chicken and Heavenly Pie were just two of the delicious dishes offered to guests at the Autumn Fund Raising Lunch hosted by members of Soroptimist International of Beverley & District at Bishop Burton Village Hall.

As well as an excellent meal, the guests were treated to a most entertaining yet thought provoking talk given by Mr Howard Petch CBE. He addressed some of the problems encountered in modern society which should not be ignored. He recommended that we should ensure that certain priorities were in place in our lives before we became too busy with ephemera. He advocated good government with integrity.

An excellent raconteur, Mr Petch kept his audience highly amused with a wide range of anecdotes.

The well attended event has raised £947 which will be used to support Age UK and other local charities nominated by the Club members this year.
