Regional Meeting and AGM
Soroptimists from throughout the Region
Nine members of the club attended the November meeting of the Region (North West England & the Isle of Man) which was held at Lancaster University on Saturday 15th November 2014.
Besides being the AGM of the Region and the annual cheque presentation to the outgoing Regional Presidents chosen charity, in this case the NSPCC represented by Jeannette Drew, there was also an excellent presentation by John Waring from Water Aid, incoming President Tessa’s chosen charity.
Garstang members were delighted to be presented with the Rosebowl as joint winners of the Rosebowl competition which was held earlier this year. A competition designed by the Regional President to engender fun and competition between the clubs in the Region.
A very pleasant day was brought to an end by the drawing of the raffle tickets for the hampers, (the contents of which had all been donated by the clubs in the Region), when Janet’s name was drawn out, a hamper wended its way back to Garstang. The money raised by this raffle in the region of £500 was to go to the Soroptimist appeal ‘See Solar, Cook Solar’.
