Meeting Reports

July meeting: Prayers and Poems. As we will not be meeting again until September, there was a slightly `end of term' party atmosphere at our well-attended July meeting. We didn’t have a speaker but each of us read a favourite poem or piece of prose. These included a good mix of both serious and not-so-serious poems and sayings, giving us all something to think about. We ended the afternoon with tea and delicious cakes supplied by the members. The next meeting is on 14th September, when Jill Thomson will talk about the Gardens of Costa Rica. June 2017 Meeting:  Jonathan Mann, The Children’s Society Jonathan Mann from the Children'sSociety was the speaker at our June meeting and he spoke very eloquently ut the various aspects of the work the Society does with children of all ages and backgrounds. In 2014/15 the Society's services helped over 34,000 vulnerable children to escape from neglect, abuse and violence, transforming their lives and giving them hope for the future. This is made possible by the funds raised by volunteers in all parts of the country, including Sharnbrook. Last year the Parish of St Peter's raised £825 from the boxes residents have in their homes to take spare small change. Also, £478 was raised from the Ouse Valley Singers' concerts and £237 from the Christingle family service, making a total of £1,540. The Society can also receive grants for special projects from either local or national government. The Children's Society aims to support and listen to as many vulnerable young people as possible, including disabled children, victims of abuse and violence, young carers and refugees, helping them to integrate and live useful and happy lives. Some even find satisfaction by becoming volunteers themselves.
