AMNESTY STREET COLLECTION
On the morning of Saturday 19th July, 11 volunteers collected for Amnesty in three different locations. Despite the very poor weather for the first two hours, we managed to raise £255 for future campaigns.
Outside Booth's in Ansdell, John Wayland, Margaret Walmsley, Jane Pinnock and Frances Beharrel collected over £100 between them. In St Annes Square, Glyn Eatock, Norah Lynam and John Hood managed nearly £70 while in Lytham Pat Ferguson, Helen Duckworth, Karen Merritt and Sarah Finlayson raised the rest.
There was some interest from passers-by who did not know much about Amnesty International and perhaps some might be taking a greater interest in the future.
We are especially grateful to the four members of The Soroptimists who joined us on this occasion.
