Welcome to CAWC International!
Are you new to the area or just looking for a fun place to make new friends? We are a social organisation of women with philanthropic goals, open to all living in the Chilterns area.
We have moved as many of our activity groups online as we can during these unprecedented times so please check out our calendar to see what’s happening this month. When we can all meet again face to face, our full range of activity groups such as hiking, lunch bunch, golf, tennis, moms and tots and movie group will all restart.
We are also looking forward to seeing everyone at our fabulous outings and events such as attending Royal Ascot, visiting the potteries at Stoke-on-Trent, our Christmas and summer luncheons and our famous May Tea Party.
Our philanthropic work is an important part of club life; our annual charity Christmas Bazaars have raised over a quarter of million pounds for local charities. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year our 33rd Annual Charity Christmas Bazaar has turned virtual with pop-up shops happening from July and an online Pyjama Party planned for later in the year: please check our bazaar page for further details as they’re confirmed.
We normally hold regular monthly meetings in the Gerrards Cross and Beaconsfield area, which include social time, quality guest speakers and a bit of shopping with our wonderful vendors. Come and join us and become part of our community.
The New Normal
CAWC International in response to the current government guidelines observing social distancing and lockdown has transitioned its culture to the virtual world. Maintaining connection with our membership is critical during this period of isolation for friendship, fellowship, joy, learning, emotional support and mental wellbeing.
We, therefore, encourage all members to view our calendar for social, learning, sports and wellbeing offerings as well as checking our member WhatsApp, Facebook updates and our monthly newsletter, Connections. We continue to offer many diverse activities and events online and welcome your participation that comes with membership.
If you are not a member, we encourage you to join us and sign up to enjoy our virtual offerings: we will welcome you with uplifting spirit and appreciation of your intention to get to know us, enjoy our offerings although virtually for the time being.
Stay well, stay safe and stay healthy.
