Fund Raising


Coffee morning for members and friends

 

A recent coffee morning, hosted by Ann, was doubly successful. Not only were members able to share coffee, cake and a chat but over £200 was raised for Maggie’s Centre at Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. Many thanks to Ann for her hospitality and welcome. maggiescentres.org/our-centres/maggies-merseyside/

 

 

Walk an extra mile with a smile  

 

This is the theme chosen by Hilary Laidler, Regional President, to support her chosen charity – DentAid.  Several members raised funds for DentAid when they walked along the Dee estuary at Parkgate.  Members were surprised to find that they had actually walked 2.2 miles! All enjoyed coffee afterwards at the Elephant coffee lounge. dentaid.org

 

 

Garden Party for Meru Women’s Garden

The weather was very kind on the day of our Strawberry Tea in August. It was held at Jill’s home and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the garden and views. We had a tombola as well as the Strawberry Tea and raised £200 for the Meru Women’s Garden Project. (meruwomen.org)

 

 

Club Social Evening

Our social evening at Kathy’s proved to be both sociable and a successful fundraiser! An excellent buffet by members and a chance to catch up with friends was the main aim. However, a raffle also raised funds for one of President Veronica’s charities – Hoylake Cottage. (hoylakecottage.org.uk)

Fashion Show

A successful Fashion Show, in partnership with Bon marche in Birkenhead was held at Tomorrow’s Women Wirral at the end of May. Members of SI Heswall teamed up with members of SI Birkenhead and the staff at Bon marche to ensure an enjoyable and successful evening. Members and friends were models and the event raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support (macmillan.org.uk‎) and Tomorrow’s Women Wirral.
