Dear Friends of SPTW,
Our Strategy Group has been considering future developments and funding for the Society. It has recognised that our name SPTW is not easily remembered and recommended that we should find a shorter title. After considerable discussion the Trustees have chosen a new operating name which has been well received. We are to be known now as:
‘Futures for Women’
The work of SPTW
This means that we keep our history and have an easier name for those who are not familiar with the Society. We hope you approve.
February’s fund raising literary lunch at which our new patron, Victoria Glendinning spoke was a very happy and successful occasion. 110 people attended the event on a beautiful spring day. We raised a considerable amount of money. We also raised our profile, made new friends and new members. We are very grateful to Victoria for her erudite and sparkling contribution. You can read more about the event on later pages.
We are fortunate to have a very distinguished speaker at this year’s AGM, Rosemary Feenan, of James Lang La Salle. This will be held on Wednesday 12th June. We hope you will come to hear her.
We continue to receive requests from excellent candidates. You will find some of their stories in this Newsletter. The more money we have the more women we can help. Please, please continue to give generously to help women to a brighter future.
With best wishes to you all,
