The UKWC blog has been very quiet recently and I do apologise for the absence of updates to the website.
I do want to help keep the Club alive, so feel free to contact me with information, photos and updates for the website and I will do my best to include them.
Last month I had the pleasure of attending the fundraising film premier of The Iron Lady. Although I took my 13 year old son along, who struggled to stay awake (clearly didn't appreciate the history lesson), I really enjoyed it and the Club raised almost $40,000 with the event. Congratulations to everyone involved!
This month we have the elections for the new committee. I wish everyone good luck with volunteering and carrying on all the good work.
On 9th June there will be a Grand Diamond Jubilee ball at the Hyatt Hotel. Be sure to put the date in your diary and book your tickets early to avoid disappointment. It's sure to be a wonderful event, and what a nice excuse to buy a new dress! Please contact Terri Sheed via firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help with this event.
