In our March meeting we had two speakers. Firstly Janice Cole a GFWI representative of ACWW (Association of country Women of the World) explained how the monies raised by Pennies for Friendship empower women throughout the world by giving them small amounts that help in many ways such as, sewing lessons and a sewing machine so that she can earn money to feed and educate her family, provide clean water, and educate young girls on sexual health matters. We raised £100 with a 50/50 raffle.
Caroline Hayden who teaches Yoga at the Dolphin Hall came to tell us about the benefits of yoga for our health and wellbeing and encouraged to take it up at any ages as it can improve our bone health, balance and flexibility. Both speakers gave us a great deal of food for thought.
