We are a very friendly group of women who meet on the third Thursday of the month  at 7.30pm in the Church Hall, St Mary and St Leonard Church, Chelmsford.

We work locally – we lobby and undertake projects that benefit women and girls with organisations such as Chelmsford Women’s Aid (Safer Places). We work regionally – with nine other clubs in the London Anglia Region to support Neat Feet Happy Hands, raising funds for a remarkably simple method that gets rid of jiggers that burrow under the skin of nails on hands and feet. We work nationally – supporting the Purple Teardrop Campaign . We work internationally – fundraising for the Meru Women’s Garden Project, which will support some of the poorest women-led households in Kenya, and is entirely focussed on providing opportunities to women and girls who may never otherwise be given the chance to earn an income, and gives them status within their community.

If you would like more information on our club and work, get in touch by email sichelmsford@gmail.com . We’d love to hear from you!
