Charles Hanson of Bargain Hunt speaking tonight

A reminder to be there by 7 pm this evening (it’s an early start) at the Welland Group of WIs meeting when Charles Hanson of Bargain Hunt will be our guest speaker.

Don’t forget to wear a hat (if you wish).  Mad Hatters is the theme.  A £1 donation will be requested, proceeds to support Wear a Hat day again which raises money for brain tumour research.

Wear a hat success!

Congratulations to Jo and team: £58 was raised this today from donations by Market Harborough WI members who wore a diverse range of headwear this evening to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.

Will you be wearing a hat this Wednesday?

At our talk this week, on what happens behind the scenes at the Royal Opera House, we shall be supporting the national Wear a Hat Day.  So, if you would like to get into the theatre groove, wear your hat or fascinator (must be something larger than a hairslide).  Donations of a £1 minimum will be made to Brain Tumour Research.  The first 50 people will receive lapel pins.

This charity is particularly poignant for MHWI member, Jo Brylka, when a brain tumour affected a close family member. Hear more about this on Wednesday.  Jo will be leading on forwarding donations to Brain Tumour Research.
