The Club is delighted to be Shortlisted for the Yorkshire Women Volunteer Awards. For the last 17 yrs. we have worked with Contact the Elderly. The Club Service Project, led by Elise Johnston, involves Club members hosting tea parties once a month usually in their own home. Other members give lifts to pick up the elderly lonely people referred to us by Contact the Elderly to and from tea parties. The guests tell us how much they look forward to their afternoon treat.

We are also delighted Club member Sue Williams has also been short listed for her leadership of the Libraries Project – providing craft materials to encourage families with young children to use the local volunteer run libraries. Sue and Club members have worked very hard to build relationships with the libraries and have involved the local Lions and Masons who have been willing to help fund the project (Community Category). The winners will be announced on 10th May.
