In 2023 members have voted against nominating a charity for the year.    The WI is, in itself, a charity and following covid we need to replenish our funds to continue providing a diverse and interesting programme for our members.   We will run one-off charity events over the year for local charities, nominated by our members.

Our members will make a decision on who we choose to fundraise for in 2023 at our February meeting.
