June 9th 2016 – The Work and Role of SARS.
WI Meeting 20160609 Bernie Nunn joined us for the evening to tell of the work and role of the Suffolk Accident and Rescue Service. This magnificent organisation provides major help for all serious medical emergencies in our area. Formed over 40years ago it is run and staffed by volunteers. It is funded basically from charitable donations so needs help from all public sources. We as a WI hope to assist their cause at a future fund raising event.
Many thanks to the refreshment girls for a superb array of cakes.
