February Report

February’s meeting was a craft and social. The NFWI is a founding member of The Climate Coalition (TCC), a group of over 100 organisations and over 15 million people working for action on climate change. Every February the NFWI encourages each WI to ‘Show the Love’ for all they want to protect from climate change. Members could choose to do book folding, tile painting, making felt decorations which all had a heart theme – refreshments were a variety of delicious homemade cakes.

January 2019 Report

Our first speakers for 2019 were Graham and Malcolm from Serv (Service by Emergency Response Volunteers) or more often known as Kent Blood Runners. They are volunteer riders and drivers who transport essential blood products and samples to accident and emergency hospitals throughout Kent and they also support local hospices. Their services are provided free of charge and the volunteers use their own vehicles and phones to run the service overnight and at weekends. In 2018 they did nearly 4000 runs!! An amazing charity that helps save the NHS money through their own generosity of their time and free transportation and can only operate with the help of public donations and talks.
