Chapter Profiles


Belles of St. Trinian's – Contact Regent Christine Smith


‘The Belles’ are a small, but inviting chapter – a mixture of working and retired women. Between us we have a wealth of DBE experience in major fundraising events, but are equally happy holding mini-fundraisers, such as small parties and film nights. We are roughly located in the Ambler/Blue Bell/East Norriton area and hold our meetings in the evening of the 3rd Wednesday of the month, meeting in each other’s homes. We are happy to welcome new members to our fun-loving group!


Charnwood Forest - Contact Regent Sara


Our chapter was founded in 1950 by Jean Crockett. The name comes from a park that Jean visited in England.  Our membership consists friendly ladies from the Ambler, Doylestown and Willow Grove areas.  We meet the second Thursday of the month at 12:00 in Ambler area restaurants with about 10-12 attending.  We are a very lovely group of friends who work to support only the cause (Victoria Home).  We have Spring and Fall fund raisers.  We will warmly welcome anyone interested in joining our group.
