A woman who admits she was bullied as a child is launching a new dining club to raise money for charity.
The Huntingdon Dining club is the brainchild of Annie Powell who has been a supporter of child protection charity, the NSPCC, for many years.
She said: “I was bullied as a child because of my stutter and so am passionate about preventing such emotional abuse for future generations.
“The services the NSPCC provides, such as ChildLine, are so vital to young people as so many youngsters now feel they have nowhere to turn and without the work of the NSPCC, the consequences can be devastating.
Four dining club meetings will be held at The George Hotel and Brasserie, in Buckden, throughout 2017.

Annie added: “I enjoy meeting new people and dining so thought it would be nice to do this for a cause very close to my heart”.
The award winning Anne Furbank women’s wear store, also in Buckden, will provide two fashion shows, one showcasing the spring collections and one in the autumn.
