Charity for 2019 -2020
This year our charity is in memory of Ann Gray. The family requested donations for any cancer charity. Three were nominated by the committee and Members were asked to vote for their choice at the March meeting. The members voted overwhelmingly in favour of The Primrose Car Scheme, part of the Bedford Hospital Charities . This scheme provides free transport for patients travelling from Bedford to Addenbrookes in Cambridge for radiotherapy treatment – many of us know people who have made use of this service. Some of the comments from the website:
“You made my stressful treatment more bearable. Everyone was so thoughtful and helpful. Thank you so much”
“Without exception your drivers showed the greatest care, courtesy and consideration at all times”
“This service is a godsend and the drivers are wonderful”
Thank you! – we raised £475 during 2018 for Magpas Air Ambulance.
The Area Members Day is at Broxbourne on Thursday April 4th 2019 – There will be a talk in the morning entitled ‘Come and Buy’ (History of Flower Sellers) by National Speaker Anne Bridge. After a buffet lunch National Demonstrator Emily Broomhead will present ‘Fleur Amour’ . It is always a really enjoyable day (cost £24) – several of us usually attend and we share transport – it would be good if you could join us – please see Lynda Smith if you are interested in going.
