World Toilet Day, 90th Birthday and Refuge Gifts – busy Club meeting!

61-Toilet Day

It was a busy Club Meeting on Nov 7th – the Club Marked “World Toilet Day” by having a bottle sale which raised £67.55 for “Toilet Twinning” www.toilettwinning.org – in addition Members took away disposable recycled coffee cups and  will “spend a penny” between now and our Meeting on Jan 16th. For every £60 we raise we can twin a toilet with a loo halfway around the world, in a country of our choosing.

60-Sheila Birthday cake

On the same evening we celebrated Sheila Chadwick’s 90th Birthday with a beautiful cake. Sheila also gave a “life talk” – filled with so many stories of how she has benefited the St Albans Community with her career in social health and still continuing her support of the Armoral Hill Day Centre for the elderly to this day.

62-Refuge GiftsWeb

Every year Club Members donate lovely Christmas presents for the clients at the St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge  and in addition throughout the year the Club provides tea and coffee and because “there is almost nothing that can’t be made better by a cup of tea”. Donations were collected at the meeting ready for “Santa” Jennie Redford to deliver to the Refuge.
