Buckshaw Village WI commissioned a group of students from Foxholes Brasserie, a training centre for students at Runshaw College, Leyland, to help celebrate the WI centenary.

The students embraced the WI and its ethos with real enthusiasm and planned the menu, a quiz, decorated the room and devised special cocktails. Gregson Lane, Brindle, Leyland and Euxton WI groups also joined in the celebrations, as did Shirley Thornton and Liz Nicholls from the Lancashire Federation. A raffle with prizes donated by local businesses raised £250 for Chorley-based Derian House Children’s Hospice.
