In April 2018 we were pleased to present the donations to the charities which we had chosen to support during Joan’s year as President. Representatives from each of the local charities were invited to join us for nibbles and a drink before the presentation.
Helen Hartin, North Lancashire Community fundraiser, accepted the cheque on behalf of Cancercare North Lancashire and South Cumbria http://www.cancercare.org.uk .
Rachael Edmonds, trustee of the Neuro Drop-in Centre http://neurodropin.org.uk was presented with a cheque for the Centre.
The cheque for Lancaster & Morecambe Children’s Holiday of a Lifetime Society was accepted by Nigel Reeves.
Steve Dunstan of North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes http://nwbb-lancs.org , who had given a presentation on the charity on a previous occasion, accepted their cheque
and we were later delighted to receive a certificate from Steve recording our donation.
We were also able to send our donation to the Izulu Orphan Projects in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa http://izuluorphanprojects.co.za .
In all this was a very successful end to Joan’s year as President.
