President Nancy Agnew welcomed everyone to the November meeting of Colmonell WRI. Nancy invited Ruth Wallace from Girvan who gave an interesting talk and film show on the El Shaddai Child Rescue charity based in Goa in India. Tremendous work is done by the charity, as they provide shelter, food, clothing, education and medical treatment for the children who live on the streets. Ruth answered questions and the vote of thanks was provided by Irene Wilson. Ruth judged the competitions which were well supported. Results were Child’s Hat and Mittens; 1st Margaret Robertson, 2nd Dora Wilson, 3rd Jesse Vint; Shoe Horn; 1st Lexi Eaglesham; 2nd Ann Robertson; 3rd Nancy Agnew. Nancy was delighted to announce that 45 sets of hats and mittens and scarves were donated by the Colmonell members and friends to the El Shaddai charity. Ruth thanked the ladies for their support, stating that the articles would help keep the children warm during the colder months.
