Humberside International Women’s Club handed out £1,200 to this year’s chosen charities at their April meeting in Nettleton Village Hall.
St Andrew’s Hospice and Women’s Aid were recipients, along with Mr M Tiltson, Consultant Surgeon of Upper Gastro Intestinal problems at Grimsby Hospital, who, with his staff, have been fundraising to buy a machine to enable him to treat patients with Barretts disease.
International aid went to plastic surgeon Nick Hart, who with his team of volunteers does life transforming surgery on underprivileged children and adults who suffer from cleft palate.
The speaker after the presentations were completed was Pauline Wilson, who shared her amusing, true experiences, of teaching literacy behind prison bars.
The group’s next monthly meeting at Nettleton Village Hall will be on June 20, as May is the AGM, when the speaker will be Jennie Storr - ‘Why can’t a Man be more like a Woman?’
