Sandra Harris – Past President and Chairman of Social Issues Committee

“I joined the League about 40 years ago as I wanted to be part of an organisation that was ‘hands on’ and worked in the community rather than one which did fundraising. I worked a regular rota delivering meals on wheels for several years and then became a volunteer at the Harrow Jewish Day Centre, until I returned to work. My first position was as Chairman of my group, Stanmore, and then I became an Area Liaison Officer for Herts and North Middlesex.  This position no longer exist as such, but it involved co-ordinating the work of about ten local groups in the area. At this time I also became a member of Council. I was the Vice-Chairman of Executive, Chairman of Executive, and finally President from 1994-97.  I am presently Chairman of the Social Issues Committee, and a member of Executive.

The League is a very important part of my life, and I have made so many good friends over the years as we all share similar views.”
