Baby Basics

Stanhoe WI members hear tales of crime and collect £366 for charity.

Stanhoe and Barwick WI members were honoured in April to have as a speaker Peter Lawrence, who had spent his working life in the London Police Force, as he said “policing from the Krays to the Queen.”

He regaled us with tales of the many well known people that he had met, from life in the seamy side of London to many years working as a diplomatic protection officer and in royal protection.

It was a tale of an impressive career path delivered in an understated way.

Later in the afternoon we were treated to a presentation by Maggie Anderson and Wendy Leedham on their work with Baby Basics, a charity with a West Norfolk branch in Dersingham.

In front of our eyes they packed a new Moses basket with clothing and vital items needed for the care of a newborn baby up to the age of 3 months, all of which had been either donated or acquired by fund raising.

WI cheque presentation to Baby Basics, Stanhoe Reading Room, April 2019

Each Moses basket is given to a needy young mum living locally who has nothing, and has been referred by a midwife or social worker.

Stanhoe and Barwick members had, last year, saved money in Smartie tubes for Baby Basics, and a cheque for £366.55 was presented to them to further their work locally.
