Money raised in Old Buckenham

Walking in the rain

Just one week ago, Old Buckenham Women's Institute  organised a local walk as a fund raiser for ACWW - Associated Country Women of the World. This is a worldwide organisation to which the Norfolk Federation WI belongs and is dedicated to raising the health and standard of living of women and their families.
A six mile walk around Old Buckenham started from All Saints church in Old Buckenham in not very promising weather. There was also be a shorter walk, around two miles of local footpaths, that left from the Village Hall car park at 11.30am.
When the walks finished, a lunch consisting of a choice of homemade soups followed by fruit pie and cream was served in the Memorial Room at the village hall for those who had braved the rain  and those other WI members who had come along to help raise funds for ACCW.
The total raised was £90.
