Autumn Lunch

Our Annual Autumn Lunch is being held at Tennant’s, Leyburn

with 2 wonderful and diverse speakers:

Jasmine Harrison The 21-year-old who rowed solo across the Atlantic

plus we can of course boast she is from North Yorkshire! one of our own.

The Bishop of Bradford Right Reverend Dr Toby Howarth

He is very involved with the multi-cultural and diverse areas of Bradford. His wife Henrietta will be accompanying him. They work a great deal with the homeless and underprivileged in the Bradford area. The Bishop is not asking for any remuneration, which is why we thought that we would have a collecting box for one of the Bradford charities “The Curry Project”, that every Saturday night provides a two-course meal for the homeless. Any donations of tinned goods or packets would be gratefully received. If you prefer there will be a money collection box. There is no pressure at all to donate.

Cost of £35 includes a Two Course Lunch and Tea/Coffee and biscuits on arrival.

As with all of our booking forms for events it has always stated that payment is non-refundable, but if we received a query we would always look at the individual circumstances e.g hospitalisation of husband/partner.  With regard to Covid, if we were sent into another lockdown we would do exactly as we did in March 2020 and that is we would refund the money, or  rearrange the event and if a member was not able to attend the rearranged date we would again refund the money to that member only. Sadly we cannot obtain insurance for any planned events against cancellation due to Covid, as a Federation though it is always our intention to look after our members to the best of our ability. Hopefully the event will go ahead, we are all looking forward to meeting  up with our WI friends and having a "Fun and Friendship "  get together.
