Our President’s message
In her presidential address June told members that her hopes are that club members continue to work together in the spirit of friendship, helping women and girls locally, nationally and internationally. She also stressed that SI is a voluntary organisation and members need to enjoy all they do.
June’s chosen charity is Phoenix at St Giles – https://www.stgileshospice.com/how-we-can-help-you/our-care/bereavement-support/support-for-young-people/ Children and Young People’s Community Bereavement Service. The development of Phoenix as a community bereavement service ensures that all children, young people, their families and others can access support before and after the death of someone close to them.
June’s motto for the year is: Life is a Journey not a destination. She quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, an American lecturer, philosopher and poet who wrote:
“We are not meant to rush through life… it’s about savouring every moment of each day. It’s about how we learn the lessons along the way. It’s about the hardships and the challenges that we are sometimes faced with and how we work through them. It’s about the joy and happiness that we experience. It’s about learning what self-care is all about. It’s about uncovering who we truly are. Life is about so many things and when we rush through it we miss the beauty it has to offer with each breath we take. It is a journey well worth exploring”.
