On Monday 20th April 2020, we held our 45th Annual General Meeting via an online Zoom meeting, with members providing updates on the past year’s work and our new President Julie welcoming us all to the new year.

                   

About our club

During the past year, the club raised funds from various events including our well-established literary lunch, and reprised its success with another International Women’s Day event Women Aloud in the year.

Money has been raised to pay for three UNICEF Schools in a Box and to make donations to the King’s Lynn Food Bank, King’s Lynn Winter Night Shelter, and Pandora Project.

The club programme action (project) activities had been wide ranging from holding an event Women Aloud in St Nicholas Chapel for International Women’s Day, assisting with English lessons for migrant workers and collections for the local Food Bank, to name just a few activities.  Our club continues to attract new members who bring with them fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

Our club is part of the London Anglia Region https://sigbi.org/london-anglia/  The region’s clubs meet throughout the year, often at Newnham College, Cambridge.  These meetings are a great chance to get to know people from across the region, share interests and socialise.
