Dragon Boat Race
East Grinstead Soroptimist Angela Edwards and Guider Alison Merricks of the 7th East Grinstead Brownies will form part of the combined crew of 20 Soroptimists and Girl Guides who are taking part in the Funraisers Dragon Boat Festival on Sunday 18th September on Bewl Water, Lamberhurst.
In preparation for this Angela has been busy knitting “Dragon Headdresses”
The “SIGGS” crew is raising money to be equally shared between three charities
- Cancer Research UK
- Pestalozzi International Village Trust at Sedlescombe
- Girlguiding Sussex East.
They are seeking sponsorship to achieve their target of £6,000. Soroptimist and team captain Anne Hudson said “This joint venture with the older Guides and Soroptimists from across the South East Region follows a request by Liz Morgan Lewis, Federation President, to foster links and encourage young women to achieve their full potential.”
Internationally Soroptimists are working on projects with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
