Our meetings are educational, interesting and full of fun at the same time. There is a really good social aspect at the meeting. There is always a time to share a joke and enjoy a song. It’s a good way to enjoy an evening after a long day at work
We meet once a month on the last Wednesday of each month.
There are three to four fundraisers every year. A great deal of planning goes into each event to make it a memorable occasion. Entire families are encouraged to participate and make a contribution towards each fundraiser be it designing a poster/banner/flyer, selling tickets, presenting on the stage, running a quiz, manning the entrance, or organising raffle. Participants get excellent exposures to a range of activities. The events also help to enhance one’s confidence and composure. Families are encouraged to join in for raising funds.
Members are encouraged to use their own initiative to take part in their chosen fundraiser activity or adventure. Five members took part in the Flora Light Women Challenge in Hyde Park in London in September 2004. Half Marathon Run in Reading was undertaken in March 2005.
The Sahara adventure and walking the Great Wall of China were exceptional challenges undertaken by members to raise funds in November and March 2005.
