The members of Soroptimist International, Buxton & District have been busy during the COVID19 lockdown. Some have been helping elderly, sick or vulnerable people by doing errands.
Many have contributed, sewn and provided aprons, laundry bags and fabric facemasks. Joint President Jo is modelling one of the aprons and 40 of these have been donated to the local Scrub Hub charity, who will distribute them to local carers.
Joint President Sue and her husband have been growing and selling vegetable plants to local people in Tideswell. So far they have donated £90 to Tideswell First Responders, £30 to Chesterfield Hospital (Calow), £60 to Tideswell Surgery and have £70 to donate to Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital shortly.
Rules on social distancing have been followed at all times.
