At the club and supper meeting, members were given the opportunity to purchase items made by the Purple Community Fund in the Philipines

Club member Jill Delgado during her many visits to Cape Verde, asked islanders to collect the ring pulls which they did with enthusiasm as a way of appreciation for the support given to their community via the club’s education trust. As a further fund raiser, members were invited to guess how many ring pulls were in on of the bags brought back by Jill.  See above – Anthea Thomas was the winner!
