At a meeting earlier this spring, Porthleven WI members were fascinated by a display of pictures taken by local photographer Arthur Roberts on a sponsored photoshoot to Svalbard, on behalf of Children’s Hospice South West.
Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago between mainland Norway and the North Pole and is one of the world’s northernmost inhabited areas.
At the meeting, members raised over £130 for Children’s Hospice SW, with a raffle, card sales and donations for coffee and cake.
Porthleven WI’s Gardening Club also managed their first outing since lockdown. Members met at Trevena Cross Nursery for a catch up and to plan their spring timetable.
Porthleven WI meets on the second Wednesday of each month at Porthleven Public Hall. New members are always welcome. You can follow Porthleven WI on Facebook to see what else they’re getting up to.
