BHS Woman-Up Society annual Interhouse Pad-drive

BHS Woman-Up Society annual Interhouse Pad-drive

Last Month the BHS Woman-Up Society launched their annual Interhouse Pad-drive.

All Houses were encouraged to contribute each Wednesday.

The winning Houses are as follows:

1st Place – Aquila

2nd Place – Phoenix

3rd Place – Vega

All the items were handed to Sisters Incorporated who then in turn will distribute to 17 women’s shelters.

Little by little we try and make a difference. In the famous words of John F. Kennedy:

“If not us, who? If not now, when?”

Thank you to all who donated. You made an immense difference in many lives.
