Community Concerns

ACWW. Associated Country Women of the World.

JULY 2018


After 7 years as your ACWW representative in the Federation, I have decided to stand down. Thank you for your donations for the five projects we have supported over that time. I have enjoyed visiting your WI meetings to promote this great organisation that supports women in the developing world. My last task has been to complete the Diary Dates fundraiser. I have sold dates all over the County and the winning date, picked at random, was June 16th chosen by Sheila Clarke of Upton WI. Sheila has donated her winning £50 to ACWW, so we have been able to give all the proceeds - £365 to ACWW.  A very big thank you to Sheila and everyone who took part.

Please keep supporting ACWW, our help will always be needed.      THANKYOU     Helen Crowder
