Mabel Boyd (CIRDIC), Pat Williams (President Inner Wheel) and Sandra Tucker (Club's President)
Mabel Boyd, the Manager of CIRDIC (Churches in Reading Drop-in Centre) was the speaker at the Reading Rotary Club Christmas Lunch held in the Pepe Sale restaurant on 20th December. She spoke of the desperate lives of the homeless in Reading and the help that CIRDIC gives them. She contrasted living in a tent in December with having a bath and a change of clothing at CIRDIC followed by a well- cooked tasty and nourishing meal. In addition CIRDIC hosts St Mungos' (who find accommodation for the homeless) as well as National Health Nurses, both general and mental.
On behalf of everyone from Dingley's Promise, may I thank you and your fellow Rotary Club members for the kind and generous support to us throughout 2016.
We could not continue to provide the life-changing service that we offer without the generous support of organisations such as yours - and we are so very grateful for everything that you do for us.
The staff, Trustees, parents and children of Dingley's Promise send you all warm good wishes for 2017.
