January 2024 – Happy New Year! – Violence against Women – Barbara Watts VIP Project – Hamlin Fistula Hospital – Tea & Temptations

Happy New Year!

We begin a New Year whilst continuing our 2023-24 programme of activities and awareness-raising.

Look our for details of the fund-raising event we will hold on 6 July 2024 – the return of a favourite event ‘Tea & Temptations’.

Violence against Women

New year – but not a new problem: violence against women and girls.  Listen to this BBC episode of Fixing Britain to learn more about current initiatives and what can be done to tackle this ongoing issue: Fixing Britain

Barbara Watts VIP project

We raised £210.00 for the Barbara Watts VIP project in December 2023.  We held a small raffle at the Christmas Dinner and added donations instead of exchanging Christmas cards.

Hamlin Fistula Hospital

We are close to beating our new target of knitting 20 blankets for the Hamlin Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia!

Blankets, like this one made by SI Woking member Fiona, are always needed for the women of all ages who come to the hospital for care and repair.  More about Hamlin Fistula UK here

If you like to knit, why not join the Hamlin community of knitters?

Tea & Temptations

We are pleased to say that we will hold the 2024 edition of Tea & Temptations on 6 July 2024.   The event is organised jointly with our sister Club SI Weybridge.  Proceeds from the fashion show and afternoon tea will be donated to Soroptimist charities.
