Joint Presidents Joy and Rayner, accompanied by Club members , visited the Sandville Self Help Centre on Wednesday June 23rd. We were taken on a tour of the centre by the inspirational founder Gwyneth Poacher. The Sandville http://www.sandville.org/ is a centre staffed by 83 volunteers who provide many services for those with problems, check out the website.
It was a beautiful evening, the views across from the centre were spectacular whichever way you looked. The Sandville has been chosen as the Presidents’ charity this year and SI Bridgend are holding a Garden Party and a Concert in Ewenny Priory (See Programme http://soroptimist-gbi.org/bridgend-and-district/programme-2010-2011programme-2010-2011 ) to raise funds for this very worthy charity.
The evening was rounded off by a delicious hot buffet in the nearby historic Prince of Wales Inn at Kenfig where the landlord Gareth Maund gave a short sketch of the history of the building.
