At the end of Victor Wild’s most enjoyable talk: ‘The Story of Bettys’, on 5th October he asked us to donate his fee to charity. It was decided to donate the fee to the Harrogate branch of Samaritans.
Accordingly on 15th October Roy Smith ( Treasurer ) and John Taylor ( Programme Sec. ) visited the Samaritan centre in Harrogate to deliver the cheque. They were welcomed by ‘ Sheila’, the Director of the Harrogate branch who conducted them on a short tour of the branch and gave a description of the work of the Samaritans. Coffee was taken and the presentation made.
