Wealden Branch Festive Cookery Demonstration

Our Wealden Branch kicked off December with a festive cookery demonstration, delivered by local Chef Martin Doyle of Food for Thought. He shared with them some quick and easy canapé recipes, just in time for the party season! They continued the festive theme, selling Christmas wreaths and table decorations all hand-made by the committee members. And in true Christmas fashion, they finished the afternoon with a raffle and tea with mince pies, Christmas cake and stollen.

We were amazed by the beautiful hand-made decorations and the fantastic £510 raised! Huge thanks to the committee and their guests for generously supporting Wellbeing of Women, helping transform the lives of women and their families.
