Friendship, Fun and Creativity

Canterbury Soroptimists joined together  on Monday July 22nd to celebrate and support the SIGBI theme for 2018 -19 “Think on it”.

This asks us to focus on our own wellbeing and mental health as well as supporting others, and is an important reminder to us all of the importance of friendship and care within our club.  

Eight members spent two hours at Expressions Arts Café in Canterbury being creative, talking, laughing, sharing friendship and feeling happy. During the morning we decorated some amazing mugs which will now be fired before being returned to us. We’re all looking forward to seeing how our efforts look once they are glazed and they will no doubt provide a reminder of our friendship and creativity.

Expressions Arts Café is popular with children and families in the area but also works extensively in the community providing opportunities for elderly and vulnerable adults and young people supporting them to explore their creative sides and improve their well being. Some of our members volunteer at these sessions on behalf of the club following training by the wonderful Catherine from the café.
