The picture is of the three finalists (Soroptimist Jane Slatter is on the right), with the Mayor of St Albans, Councillor Rosemary Farmer at the front. The other finalists in the Voluntary Sector were the St Albans Museum Volunteers (on the left) and the St Albans Helping the Homeless Group. Members of the Club Barbara Saunders, Jane Slatter and Katherine Clark all attended the awards event to represent the Club. Barbara said “We could hardly believe it when we won because the other finalists would have been truly worthy winners.”
The whole event was lovely and wonderful to hear about the work of so many inspirational people and groups in the St Albans area.
