AUSTWICK WI: SUPPORTING INGLETON FOODBANK Austwick WI are now supporting the new Foodbank in Ingleton which covers the surrounding area including Austwick, Clapham and Burton, and partners with Bentham in providing food – including fresh food and hot meals – to local families in need. Supported by the churches and run from Ingleton Church Hall, the Ingleton Foodbank supports families in need including any not receiving Universal Credit. It has the support of the Skipton Foodbank which will continue to serve that area. With the generous help of Ian and Michelle at Crossleigh Stores, Austwick WI will continue to collect donations, and wish to thank you for your generous recent support and for your continuing help for this initiative in our more immediate area
At the November meeting members welcomed Hanneke Dye. Hanneke was born in 1943, and shared her story of being brought up in Nazi occupied Holland. Her mother gave birth to her in secret, and Hanneke spoke about how the Germans searched her aunt’s house where she was hidden but they did not manage to find her. Her talk was illustrated by slides and artefacts that she had acquired when researching her story.The next meeting on December 9th at 7.30pm in Austwick Parish Hall will be the Christmas get together when magician Chris Winnick will entertain us.
