Around the Women's Institutes: Benson

OUR May meeting started with a very successful and lucrative bring and buy sale, the proceeds from which will help to boost our finances somewhat.

Then Yvonne welcomed 26 members who all sang Jerusalem, accompanied by Val on the piano. We were helped by a large screen on which the words were shown. This had been organised in memory of Jill Spence, a member of the Benson WI for many years, who sadly died last year.

Every year WI members countrywide propose and select worthwhile resolutions that could form the basis for campaigns and activity.

The motion to be put to the vote this year is about “increasing organ donation”. All members were asked by Yvonne for a show of hands and it was a unanimous decision that Benson WI agreed that this should be put to the vote at the national federation’s annual meeting in Leeds on June 7.
