Ten-year-old launches youngest Wizo group

Golda's Girls break new ground for women's charity

    The perception of Wizo is not necessarily one of youth. But that was before Golda’s Girls, a Leeds committee of pre-teens.

    It was launched with a  hot chocolate afternoon which raised in excess of £1,700. Guests were welcomed by ten-year-old Eleanor Shenderey, who said it was great to see so many supporters. “This means the world to me.”

    She also thanked her friends on the committee — Jemima Broch, Layla Niman, Abigail Brash, Lara Ingleby, Ellie Casper, Natalie Nicholson, Rachel Cohen, Sadie Cundle, Lottie Winston, Betsy Rose, Evie Lindley and Lucy Bootle.

    Liz Jacoby, co-chair of Leeds Wizo, said the group was the youngest in the charity’s history. “A great number of youngsters learn about Wizo from their parents or grandparents so I am particularly delighted to welcome Eleanor, a fourth generation member.”
