Swishing For The Refuge

Our Club was delighted when we heard that the Friends of Bournemouth Womens Refuge had been chosen by the Mayor, Cllr Chris Rochester as one of his charities this year. To raise funds,a  “Swishing ” event was held in a local hotel-where members of the public bring their unwanted but elegant clothes for sale,and hopefully go home with replacement items for their wardrobes ! Several Members from our Club volunteered to help with the organising and here they are with the Mayor and Mayoress enjoying the evening.


Over £1,500 was raised,and a third of this will go toward the Friends of the Womens Refuge.
