Wednesday 8th of October saw fundraiser and campaigner Manuela Wahnon return to give one of her annual Attitude of Gratitude talks to the Platinum Club members luncheon, held twice monthly in the ABC Church Hall.
Manuela soon had the members chuckling and participating as her talks are as always pro active and audience led. During her walk around the hall, it was clear that she had the attention of everyone there, especially as she had brought along small gifts to hand out to those that answered the simple but profound question “what makes you happy?”
Answers included “family and friends“, “peace and tranquility” along with one for “the Greek Islands” which raised some smiles.
Encouraged by the club secretary Peter Ponting, the local campaigner had a chance to show the club members her Point of Light Award. She happily explained that she was now the 48th recipient of this National Award which was sent to her from David Cameron’s Office.
The Platinum Club gives everyone there the chance to meet up twice a month as well as enjoy a good meal and “a cup of tea“.
On receiving her cheque, Manuela explained her fee would be donated to the Wedding Wish Well Foundation Charity.
