February Dinner Meeting

Following two business meetings in January and February on zoom, we had a brilliant evening at Hargreaves Cafe.  Our after-dinner speaker was Jeanette Sykes, who along with our Club President Deborah, is a volunteer with Buxton’s Riding for the Disabled.  This is a national Charity which does so much to help disabled children and adults build confidence and have fun with the horses, and Jeanette gave us a fascinating insight into the Buxton branch.  She told us of its history and development, and we learned about its busy timetable, huge popularity and fundraising.   Club members thanked Jeanette for her extremely worthwhile work and entertaining talk.


The “Krisevac Project” – Malawi 

Having been made aware of this project by our two members who live in Leek, many Club members are now donating much needed items such as bikes, sewing machines, knitting needles, wool and books of all descriptions.

On 21 February, Club member Chris delivered several boxes of books,  3 bikes, 2 sewing machines, 5 tennis rackets, 3 squash rackets and 1 recorder to the Centre in Stoke.The project greatly appreciate the donations made and Chris told them there are more to come!
