On Tuesday 12th March you need to save the date for a special RL morning of fashion at our ever popular annual Fashion Show. More details to follow.
On Tuesday 26th February RL hosted Dedra Stevenson, an author and film producer based in UAE. Dedra gave a fascinating talk about her road from Alabama to UAE and the impetus that pushed her into being an author. Dedra recommends her book Desert Magnolia as the best introduction to her writing.
RL made another successful trip to Ajman last Tuesday. Jeanette and Connie took along all your lovely donations and they were received with gratitude and many messages of thanks for our continued support. They filled around 150 bags with food for distribution and handed out your kind donations with pleasure.
In addition to food, one RL member gave 40 colouring pencils and notepads which delighted the children. It was a joy to see their faces light up at receiving an unexpected gift just for them. We also handed in 3 bags of unwanted medications to the pharmacy. These were gratefully received.
We asked the organisers what they thought would be well received next month and the quick response was oil, flour and sugar to enable the ladies to make their own bread. Collecting starts next week for this excellent target of enabling ladies to bake their own bread!
If you would like to help bagging up or on distribution night please get in touch with Jeanette on email@example.com or speak to her on Tuesday morning.
