The Purple Community Fund – Jane Walker MBE on Monday 18 March 2019

For a number of years the club has been selling Purple Community Fund hand made items in support of the charity and the women who make them.

On Monday 18 March we will welcome back Jane Walker MBE, CEO for the charity. She spoke at our day conference in Winchester in March 2017, so we are pleased to welcome her back for an update on the work of the charity.

In 2002, Jane Walker developed highly successful, poverty reduction programmes for disenfranchised communities in some of the worst slums in the Philippines.  Following her fantastic work, she was awarded an MBE in 2009 and won the Woman of the Year UK award in 2010.  Making the Philippine charity self- sustainable after 15 years, in 2016 Jane turned her attention back to the UK and is currently CEO for the Purple Community Fund, a charity that provides social enterprise projects for socially excluded people living in the UK.  She continues to support and work with PCF Philippines.

The meeting will be held at the Holiday Inn Winchester Telegraph Way, Morn Hill, Winchester at 7.30pm on Monday 18 March. Guests and interested potential new members are welcome to join us. Jane’s presentation will be preceded by a two course meal at a cost of £16. If you would like to book a place, please let us know here by Friday 9 March 2019.
