Please take a look at the photographs taken during this year’s Packing Week event. All our Presidents and helpers sorted and distributed over 35,000 items which were then distributed to charities working with the vulnerable and in need in the UK. A great achievement!
The Annual General Meeting of the Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild took place on the 4th June 2019 at the Lansdowne Club in London, W1. We were so pleased so welcome Presidents and guests from across the UK to our meeting.
Our speaker this year was Natasha Jean-Louis, Team Manager at Changing Pathways. Natasha gave an inspiring talk on the vital work of her organisation who provide refuge and support for women and families who have been victims of domestic abuse.
Tea and cakes were served after the meeting. Many thanks to the Lansdowne for their great hospitality again this year.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the Guild’s Packing Week event this year will take place between the 7th and 8th November 2019 at St James’s Palace.
The Queen Mother’s Clothing Guild (QMCG) distributed 33,507 new items to 65 charities in England and Scotland. This included 500 sleeping bags and 1000 foil survival blankets for the homeless, 2,850 pairs of thermal socks and 1,100 thermal hats, 4,000 items of underwear and 2,500 items of linen.
