The District 12 Charity

District 12 Chairman, Chris Head-Rapson, has chosen to ask each club to support either a women's refuge or a homeless shelter.

At the July District Meeting, members were asked to support her local women’s aid charity, Bexley Women’s Aid, by donating items for the beach for a planned trip to Southend.
Here is the result, a table groaning with gifts for the outing, such as buckets and spades, balls, skipping ropes, crisps, drinks and sweets.
One club donated money for all the children to have an ice-cream.
They had a wonderful time!
