TWO new presidents have been appointed by Huddersfield Soroptimists.
Evelyn Turibamwe, of Longwood, and Nancy Solomons, of Fixby, were appointed at the group's annual meeting.
A £1,000 cheque, the results of a year's fund raising, was presented to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance at the event.
Evelyn and Nancy will share will share office for a year.
One will carry out the presidential duties for two months, then they will swap over.
Evelyn said: "I could not commit to being president for a whole year and neither could Nancy, so we are sharing.
"It is not unusual; we have had three presidents in one year before now."
Fundraising is just one role of the Huddersfield group, which is part of Soroptimists International.
The world-wide association of women professionals was founded in 1924. The word soroptimist means `the best of sisters'. Members are concerned with issues surrounding women in health, education, the environment, economic development, human rights and culture.
They hold regular fundraising events to support the local community. Huddersfield Soroptimists meet every Monday, mostly at Kirkwood Hospice in Dalton.
