September is Awareness Month for the SVP. This year our theme is ‘Who Cares?’; the answer, of course, is that the SVP cares. During the last year we have welcomed four new members bringing our total to eleven active members; however, we hope to increase our membership even further. We have made 432 visits and given practical assistance in 169 cases, in total, members spent 1,189 hours on SVP activities and business. Our Annual appeal will be held next weekend as your financial support enables us to fulfil our commitments.
