A Presentation was given about the work of Sightsavers by Corrie Nitzsche, a volunteer doctor for the charity.


Each club in District chose a stall or competition to tempt the buyers and the stalls and most of the members were decked out in 'Blue with a touch of Orange', the Sightsavers theme colour. After a hard morning's selling, an excellent lunch was served by Sharon O'Meara and her team, and she was presented with a bouquet by Linda Taylor. Treasurer Dot Boardman added up the proceeds and the magnificent sum of 3,800 was raised.
