On a cold, sunny late October day Inner Wheel friends from district10 assembled in Peopleton Village Hall to share lunch and hear more of this year’s District International project.  One of Pershore Club’s Presidents Anne Angood, gave an interesting, enlightining talk on the life and culture in Sri Lanka.  this was based on her own experiences as a teacher there for six years. It highlighted the poverty and lack of amenities that we take for granted here at home. When schools were lost either through war or the tsunami, the rebuilding programme did not include toilet facilitie 21 schools have been identified as the most needy for providing toilet facilities.  The district 10 project is to meet this need as far as possible.  Lack of facilities can cause not only embarrasment, but medical problems as well. In particular, girls miss about 25% of their schooling whilst menusaturing. There was a lively discussion during lunch. A “toilet themed quiz” and trivia toilet facts followed. Members had generously supported the raffle and bring aand buy stall. Raffle prizes were distributed before District Chairman Gill officially closed this year’s event with a quote from Mother Teresa “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We only have today. Let us begin.”
