The 2016 AGM and The Stephanie Kay Manchipp Award

The Society’s AGM was held on the 17th of September at Doggetts Coat And Badge on the South bank with beautiful views over the river.

At the AGM the officers gave their reports and Lois Sykes gave us a overview of an upcoming exhibition opportunity for S.O.F.A. members with Cat’s Protection, to help them celebrate their 90th anniversary.  This will be next year in April. Details of the exhibition will be going out to members soon.

Once the business of the AGM was concluded Kay presented this year’s Stephanie Kay Manchipp Memorial Award. The award is presented in honour of Stephanie Manchipp, who was passionate about encouraging new members to become full members of the society. In her memory, the society will award a prize each year for the most outstanding work by a new member.

The look Lauretta Bertarelli

S.O.F.A. is very pleased to announce that the fifth Stephanie Kay Manchipp Memorial Award for new members goes to Lauretta Bertarelli. Lauretta lives in Italy so her husband kindly came to the AGM to receive the award on her behalf. He was presented with a certificate, designed by Ben Manchipp, and a cheque for £100 by our Chairman Kay Young.

Congratulations Lauretta!
