Next Link: Raising funds during the summer of 2022

in

During the summer break we were treated to a delightful Tea Party on 30th August hosted by Lucy and Gish to raise funds for our Club’s charity of the year Next Link.   Members and friends enjoyed a cream tea in Lucy’s lovely garden on a warm summer day.  As always David and Peter two of our Soroptomisters  showed off their excellent “waiting skills”.   In addition to the tea, we sold books and plants to increase the funds and raised over £198.  Thank you, Lucy and Gish, for a lovely afternoon.     Then on 19th September Susan G and Maureen organised one of their famous Beetle Drives.      As always it was a fun evening supported not only by those attending but by donations from those unable to attend.  The event raised £343 and included a very successful raffle.Thank you, Susan G and Maureen,

  We had an amazing concert in aid of Next Link our Club Charity for 2022/23.   A lot of hard work went into the preparation and on the night by Sally and her team, but it certainly paid off.  Sarah from Next Link gave a brief talk about the charity who support survivors of domestic violence. We had a full house with refreshments and from the very start the band “Sisters of Swing” enticed couples onto the floor to dance.  It was a fun evening and raised a considerable amount for the charity.  Many thanks to all those who worked hard to make it a success and a huge thank you to those of you who came to enjoy the evening with us,
