Every July, SIB holds our monthly meeting by the beach to appreciate the beautiful part of the world where we live. We have fish and chips, games, and fund-raising opportunities while enjoying the view over Poole Bay and the Purbecks. This year we had a ‘name the bee’ competition as well as a ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’. We raised £100 for the Liberty Project, a southwest based charity that provides a safe house for potential victims of human trafficking and modern-day slavery, supporting people during a reflection and recovery period. We had Poppy Blundell from the charity speak to us recently and were struck by the important work that they do, helping people in considerable need.
The main event of the evening was three rounds of bingo where winners were given a small prize as well as a Soroptimist sweatshirt. Christelle Attisso, our newest recruit, was delighted to win hers and immediately put it on- it looked like it was made for her!
Thank you to members, friends, family, and alumnae for getting stuck in on the evening to have fun and to support a worthy cause.
