Our next meeting is on Thursday 10 January: Mental Health
We’re starting off the new year by taking some time to think about our mental health. This is linked to the WI’s latest campaign, Mental Health Matters. We’ll be hearing from our local charity the Cellar Trust, and also from some of our members about their experience of mental health issues. Join us to learn more about how we can help ourselves and others.
There is no charge for members and guests are very welcome (£4 payable per guest).
Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank and red box project
We are continuing to collect items for the Foodbank. Bring along any non-perishable items you would like to donate (see their website for suggested items). We are also collecting sanitary wear for the red box project.
What will happen at the meeting?
The meeting starts at 7:30 in the hall at St Peter’s Church, Moorhead Lane. There’s always time to grab some refreshments and catch up with friends or meet new people, and the meeting itself will start at around 7:45.
We always start with a brief business meeting, led by our President Fiz. We’ll share news and future plans – it can be handy to have your diary with you to note down dates.
After that we’ll listen to a talk from the Cellar trust, and follow up with some informal discussions, including contributions from members who will share their experiences with us. We’ll take a look at the WI campaign information and look at ways we can help.
The meeting will finish at around 9 p.m.
I’m not a member – can I come?
Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.
Our usual guest fee is £4. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you and say hello!
What should I bring with me?
It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events.
We are continuing to collect items for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank and the Red Box Project, so do bring along any food or sanitary products you wish to contribute.
