Please help us to help WIZO with their vital work by coming to this event. We also need table sponsors for this evening so if anyone or any Business/Company would like to sponsor a table at a cost of £25 please let me know as soon as possible. For those of you have already confirmed you would like to come please can you drop of your ticket money of £20 per person payable to WIZO B’Yachad as soon as possible.
