SCF group closing down Decades of Upper Hutt coffee mornings and lunches to fund- raise for Save the Children will end next month. After 47 years the Upper Hutt group is calling it a day, having failed to get a new committee to continue the work. Convener Judith Curry said it was largely because of an ageing membership and younger women too busy in paid work. Monthly coffee mornings, featuring a guest speaker, have attracted a turnout of about 70 women. The winter and Christmas lunch events have catered for up to 120 people at the Hapai Club. Each coffee morning raised about $350 and the lunches usually raised more than $1000. Mrs Curry said the group s demise was a sign of the times and would be missed, both for its fundraising success and as a social activity. Most of the women were retired and some had moved into rest homes. Younger women were in paid work, and free childcare enticed even more back into the workforce, she said. Mrs Curry said the group meetings set a high standard of food and presentation of the hall. The women, mostly on fixed retirement incomes, raised money through their traditional cooking and craft skills so mov- ing the group to a cafe was not a viable option. The group is part of the Wel- lington branch of Save the Chil- dren. President Sue Clothier said the closure would be a huge loss to the organisation which was grateful for so many years of fundraising which averaged $7000 a year from coffee mornings and lunches. It had become quite an insti- tution in Upper Hutt and members were so enthusiastic . The Save the Children shop in Upper Hutt closed last year so the nearest is in Lower Hutt. There is also a shop in Welling- ton. Anyone interested in staying involved is welcome to support the Wellington branch. More details can be found on the organisation's website, savethechildren.co.nz where people can also shop online.

Stitched up inside prison Two new Bernina sewing machines have been donated to Arohata Women s Prison by members of the Pinestream Quilters group. Some members teach the shut-in stitchers and the club donated the machines to support the work. Members also give fabric for the women to use and see finished projects at monthly club meetings. Club member June Nixey has been volunteering at the prison since 1993.
