Thank you to the members who were able to attend the after work networking event on the 3rd March at the Royal Maritime Club, where our Chair’s current charities had a chance to meet and tell us about the work that they do.
Leanne James and Sam from Portsmouth Foodbank, Tim Branson and Catherine Murgatroyd from Portsmouth Counselling Service For Children and Young People (NFP Counselling), Natasha Solanki and Amy Baines from Home Start Portsmouth, and Becky Stotesbury and Clare Ansell from Motiv8 all gave great short presentations/talks about the charity and it’s works.
It was also an opportunity to listen to the webmaster Sau-Wan Lai discuss the work carried out on the website, the benefits to members and the general public, and how members can now engage with social media.
We were able to announce that £800 has been donated to each of the four charities from our fundraising events and funds so far. Unfortunately, it was also meant to be an opportunity to hear from the Chair Sam Marsh, but due to covid she was unable to attend.
Thank you to Members and their guests who joined us, and the buffet that was supplied, Royal Maritime Club provided delicious food.
