Happy New Year 2018!
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I would like to wish you all a peaceful and prosperous New Year!
Well, I am nearly 3/4 of the way through my year as President of SI Widnes and can’t believe how quickly the time has flown. We have certainly had lots of fun, food and fundraising as I hoped with our Strawberry Tea and Teddy Bears’ Picnic (to name just a couple of events) and there are still more to come.
We have raised money for Zoe’s Place Zoe’s Place and have sponsored a Hack-Back Hack-Back CIC ‘Reading with Owls’ session at Widnes Academy (West Bank Primary School). The feedback from the children was amazing, “We got to hold the owls. I liked taking it (the book) home and I’ve read it to my brother.”
We also have a new charity, ‘The Girls’ Network’, an organisation which helps to provide mentors to girls from underprivileged backgrounds to help develop their confidence and self-esteem and to make them aware of the opportunities are available to girls today and in the future. The Girls’ Network
