Helen and Margaret are twin sisters – this is their story:

  • Foundation members of BPW Central Hawkes Bay when it was formed 40 years ago in 1969.
  • While never accepting the role of President they have both been represented on the committee several times and been influential in many projects over this time.
  • Both sisters became life members in 1990.
  • Their wonderful sense of humour and knowledge is much appreciated by the club, making a 30km round trip to attend a BPW meeting and are rarely absent.

Helen and Margaret have attended many conferences in their time and considered the backbone of their club.
