The Mayor and Mayoress of Cowbridge with the Town Crier stopped by the Bridgend Soroptimists tombola stall at the Cowbridge Lions May Fair on 6 May. The Bridgend club was raising funds for their President’s mental health charity. The ‘Guess the Name of the Bear’ competition was won by Hannah Kennedy from Miskin who was spot on calling the bear Barnaby.   We were also delighted to see Alun Cairns MP who was very supportive of the Club’s activities and has agreed to be a guest speaker at a forthcoming meeting (promising that he will not speak on politics!)

This followed a meeting Sharon and Marjorie had with Bridgend College to explore opportunities to work together. The Wellbeing Festivals were held on 15th May at the College’s Bridgend campus and on 16th May at the Pencoed campus. President Sharon said, “It was great to have this opportunity to talk to students and staff from the College and tell them about the projects we do in Soroptimist International Bridgend. I am looking forward to do more with them in the future.” #ThinkOnIt
