March 2017- interesting email

 This email was sent to the main Sreepur site. It is wonderful to hear how inspiring a Speaker Ruby Porter is-

I would be interested in someone coming to my Local WI to talk about this amazing charity. I recently moved from Cheshire to Leicestershire. With my previous WI I organised several evenings with the wonderful Ruby Porter. She was a brilliant speaker putting across the stories behind the home and the work. I was lovely hearing her the following yeasr telling us how the girls were doing. I now live near Lutterworth and wonder if you anyone local to peak and sell your beautiful l cards and craft objects. I  hope you and help. Jean Eastell  President  of Ullesthorpe WI
