SWRI Meeting

Slamannan SWRI met in Slamannan Primary School on Wednesday, March 5. After business there followed a talk by Angela Wagstaff of Mary’s Meals which was very much enjoyed by all who attended. Members asked questions after the talk to gain further information about Mary’s Meals and the services they provide to children and their families in Malawi and other areas. The competition was Make Truffles - 1 Jane Miller; 2 Lyn Kelly; 3 Mary McNee. Members also brought along items for backpacks for Mary’s Meals which are being sent to the children in Malawi. Tea was served followed by the raffle and the meeting ended with the National Anthem.
