President’s Message


President 2021 - 2022

I am pleased to continue as President for a second year.

My local charity is GARAS – Gloucestershire Action for Refuges and Asylum Seekers whose work is ever increasing and more necessary. I aim to invite their representatives to speak to us so we can better appreciate what they do and what they need, especially for women and girls.

My International charity of the year is British Red Cross, which is working at home and all over the world helping where people are in crisis from wars and disasters. Such as Yemen, Syria, Somalia & Afghanistan before the tragedy of Ukraine has taken the headlines.

Money is not everything but fundraising enables us to support groups who need it. I hope we can all look forward to a successful and fulfilling year.
