OUR PRESIDENT ELECT SOWS THESEED OF AN IDEA FOR BOTH OF US.
We’ve hit our target of £2000 in one year instead of two to train a paediatric nurse, and at the dinner meeting I enjoy the update from Alexis and Gordon Cowie, trustees of the charity Friends of Sick Children in Malawi (www.friendsofsickchildreninmalawi.org).
I’m really impressed with the work being done, not least with the information that 99.7pence in every pound goes directly to the projects we have sponsored. It’s always great to hear about the paediatric nurses we have supported, we began back in 2013 and the reports have encouraged Club and successive Presidents to continue this as our International charity.
President Elect Elaine whispers to me ‘wouldn’t it be great to actually go out there’. I agree – it’s an interesting idea but am I up for this?
Dave, my husband, decides to share his small inheritance from his Mum. He thinks I will buy something fancy for my garden, I decide to check out airfares to Blantyre, Malawi!
