She and other members of Ladies’ Circle GB&I will be joining young women from across Europe for the three day event, which will combine their council meeting to discuss charitable and community activities with tours of the city, parties and the opportunity to meet and make new friends.

Ruth said: “As Ladies’ Circle in Great Britain was the founder of the international organisation, it is an honour to represent us as President.

“It is an amazing opportunity to experience international fellowship at its best and I can’t wait to join in the festivities!”

Ladies’ Circle International was founded in 1959, although there have been clubs in Sweden since the late 1940s, and now has members across 34 countries worldwide promoting friendship and raising funds for many and varied charities.

The mid-term meeting takes place in the run up to their international conference, held at the end of August, which provides the opportunity for members of all affiliated member countries to join together for their AGM and other events.

One of the highlights is the parade of all the nationalities through the host city’s streets, with each country in ‘national’ or matching costumes.
