Cambridge Catholic Women’s League members heard first hand about the challenges facing the ever increasing numbers of children needing support in our communities.

Linda Roil of Kids in Need Waikato was the guest speaker at the league’s monthly meeting in Cambridge last week.

She spoke of the extent of the challenges and frustration she and other Kids in Need members face in their work and the sadness they encounter.

The league, which meets monthly on the first Wednesday of the month at St Peter’s Catholic Church, has about 35 members.

It was established in New Zealand in 1931 and unites Catholic women in fellowship and to foster mission, charitable and social action.

Cambridge league members donated more than $800 worth of items – a carload full – of new socks, undies, singlets, fleece clothing, jackets, pillows and bedding.
