'The Hand On'….to the Next Generation

Thanksgiving2012a The Hypatia Trust held its annual Thanksgiving Day celebration on Thursday 22nd November 2012 at The Lime Tree Cafe at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens.

Forty-five lively people filled the room despite the dreadful weather outside.

At the dinner, we welcomed

  • Polly Attwood, our new Director
  • Dr Tehmina Goskar, our new Elizabeth Treffry Curator
  • Joanne Schofield, our new Events Organiser.

.......and raised a toast to 'new beginnings'.

Melissa will remain a Trustee after this 'hand on' & hopefully have a little more free time [wish-full thinking].

The evening finished with a raffle of pottery, donated by local ceramist Debbie Prosser. Debbie couldn't attend so she donated a number of bowls and mugs for the raffle. The ceramics were displayed on a beautiful pashmina shawl donated by Ruth Simpson, which made another prize.

The raffle made £75 for the funds and we are very grateful to Debbie and Ruth.
