In to win: Fay Smith, left, who has attended SCF meetings in Upper Hutt for 20 years or more and served 14 years on the committee, buys a raffle ticket from committee member Jean Allen for a Christmas cake made by convener Judith Curry and iced by Noeline Dobson. The largest turnout farewelled 47 years of Save the Children fundraising meetings in Upper Hutt on Wednesday. Convener Judith Curry said it was a shame the popular gatherings had to close. She said this year the Christmas luncheon had its largest turnout ever of 118 including many long-serving members. The group, a sub-branch of Wel- lington, is closing because of an ageing membership and not enough volunteers to form a committee. There were presentations to long-serving members, former conveners and key people in the well-oiled organisation of the monthly coffee mornings, and winter and Christmas luncheons at the Hapai Clubrooms. The longest attending member was Betty Adams whose involve- ment began in the 1950s. Jocelyn Jeffery was the longest serving committee member of SCF present, and a past convener and secretary. There was also special thanks to food convener Alison Blackwell. Upper Hutt s mayor and mayor- ess have been regular attenders at the two luncheons and when Wayne Guppy drew the raffle, one of the winning tickets had been bought by mayoress Sue. Wellington branch president Sue Clothier sent her apologies and a ticket bought for her won the raffle for a Christmas cake made by convener Judith Curry and iced by Noeline Dobson. Gai Kidd, a member of the Wel- lington branch executive, congratulated the group on 47 years, the luncheon a sad but a wonderful celebration , of so much done for Save the Children to help families overseas and, in more recent years, also in New Zealand. She acknowledged present and past conveners and her thanks to the women who ran the kitchen was followed by applause. Each year the group has raised about $7000. Mrs Curry praised members for their knitting. The last batch was 100-plus jerseys, 50-plus dolls and a hat for children in Bosnia and Russia. They were welcome to continue and drop their items to Something Crafty, she said. Entertainment was provided by The Happy Wanderers Singers, a social group of singers from the region whose main performances are at retirement complexes and rest homes. They presented a bracket of popular songs, carols and Christmas songs, including Jesus Came on Christmas Day written by their keyboardist, Colin Dalziel. Former convener Jocelyn Jeffery ended the function with a poem, If I Were Santa, outlining a wishlist to reverse the signs of growing older.
