The Pear Tree Fellowship October2017

 

The Pear Tree Fellowship

Our Talk at the September Meeting was led by Jenny Way who is the sister of our own Jeanne Miller.  Jenny has been a Trustee of Home Start since it began in 1995.

Home Start started in Bournemouth, then was extended to Poole, Christchurch and East Dorset. It is a leading Family Support Charity that helps families in trouble to manage and resolve their problems. It gives them moral support where it is most needed.

They have supported 186 families and 486 children in the last year. It is run by the Trustees and has paid staff as well as volunteers. They have their H.Q. in Kinson. They have been supported by the various Councils, the big Lottery and by Children in Need among others.

It is obviously a very worthwhile organisation and Jenny was an enthusiastic speaker who has been a Trustee there for the last 22 years before retiring.

Next month on 10th October we shall hear about Jean and Pete Steele's Travels to Australia to see their son and family.

Our November Talk has the intriguing title of 'Dial a Ride'.
