Our coffee morning at the Museum of London n Docklands on Friday 23rd October was lively to say the least. Ruth, a member of Wanstead WI, joined us to talk about the work of the Woman's Trust, a charity providing counselling for victims of domestic violence. Ruth invited us join in the 4km/10km walk/run event to be held to raise funds for the Woman's Trust on 14th November in Victoria Park. You can find out more about the event on the Women's Trust website.
Of course, we all subscribe to the sensible adage of doing all things in moderation. A number of women are keen to join in - even if it means walking rather than running. However, if you are serious about running, you may have just enough time to get fit using the Couch to 5k programme. If anyone is interested in doing this, do let us know - it would be great to have an East End WI contingent!
More moderation followed with our cake testing - just a little bit of cake to make sure it comes up to our high standards. The general consensus was that this particular venue makes the most excellent Victoria Sponge.
And here's the evidence.
