MRS SHERRY WATSON
Other Presidents are elected by the Committee as ordinary members. Ordinary members retire by rotation after serving for three years and are not eligible for re-election, unless appointed as Officers, for a further three years.
The Royal Group
The Royal Group was formed in 2002 after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. It is currently run by Mrs Victoria Spendlove and is supported by the many friends and associates who contributed to both the individual Royal Groups before they were amalgamated.
The Scottish Group
Mrs Clare Russell started the Scottish Group of Queen Mary’s Clothing Guild in 1986. The Group grew from 20 knitters in the first year to over 700.
In 2009 when a legacy from one of Mrs Russell’s knitters was left to The Guild it was decided that income from this wonderful gift would be used to specifically buy garments for Scottish Charities nominated by the Scottish Presidents, currently there are 4 Presidents operating in Scotland.
The Schools Group
Schools can contribute to the work of the Guild either by fundraising or donating items for distribution to the charities we support, possibly through a mufti day collection when students are each invited to donate a new pair of socks or hat or scarf. We provide a Schools Pack (see How to Help) which includes useful information if your school is interested in joining our Charity. Mrs. Parry, President of Schools Group, is also happy to visit any school to talk about the Guild. Alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
