The turn of the year is always a time for reflection and a look back at 2016 and the things we have done: the torrential rain on the day of the Woodbridge Regatta; the brief but heavy shower on a very successful Martlesham Road Race; litter picking on Bawdsey beach and at the Woodbridge Horse Show. The Christmas Parcels project and all the fundraising that went to support it; some enjoyable social events and a number of charities supported, including:
Home Start Suffolk; Suffolk Coastal Young Peoples Project; Home Farm Trust East Suffolk; Friends of Orwell Panthers – sending a team to the Special Olympics, and; East Anglia Children’s Hospice.
The “Little Dresses for Africa” project really caught the imagination of a number of sewing groups. We are very grateful to them for all the beautifully decorated dresses, which will be sent on in the New Year in a consignment from the Lions’ Clubs of East Anglia. For anyone wishing for more details of this project, they can be found at http://www.littledressesforafrica.org/blog/
If you would like to include any dresses with those we send, please get in touch – details below – or please contribute independently if you prefer.
Our thanks to everyone who supported us in 2016 and may we wish you all a safe, healthy and prosperous New Year.
