Remember, the choice of Charities will reflect the nominations made by members. All nominations are now being counted and allocation of funds to Charities will be made at the end of the year and presented at the December General Assembly.

Fundraising is being carried out as the result of specific requests by members with all donations entirely voluntary and kept completely separate from Membership Funds.
