Jim Jacobs will be the visiting speaker at the July monthly meeting. Jim will be telling us about the invaluable work of the Market Harborough and The Bowdens Charity, the largest in the area. This includes taking on responsibility for that famous local landmark, the Old Grammar School, that forms the basis of the Market Harborough WI logo.
The Charity dates back to 1570 and earlier. Today it is the amalgamation of 2 local charities in 1994. Importantly, it funds many local initiatives through amateur sport, arts, relief in need, community, education and the environment. Organisations can apply to it for support. So, join us on Wednesday 24 July at the Congregational Church Hall, Bowden Lane, Market Harborough to find out about the work it has been doing.
