Spring Lunch 2011
Our Spring Lunch was, as usual, enjoyed by all. We were addressed by our President, Sheila Stuart who welcomed our Honorary President, Mrs. Ségolène Paxman, wife of HM British Ambassador. Sheila also introduced John Tomlinson, acting Consul of Madrid, who gave us an interesting talk on the work of the British Benevolent Fund of Madrid. This Fund is run in conjunction with Age Concern and the Consulate and is a “Charity of Last Resort” for British Citizens in difficulties mainly in the Madrid area, although in extreme cases help can be extended to those living in other regions in Spain.
