Red Rose, White Rose – Soroptimist Friends

Soroptimists meet on-screenCrosby’s Soroptimists have again been a-travelling on-screen – this time over the Pennines, to the white rose county.

President Chris Chua-Short and several members joined Friendship Link club SI Keighley and other Yorkshire Soroptimists for a pre-Christmas party.

Quizzes, poems, songs and a bumper raffle were good fun. Everyone enjoyed a professional reading of ‘A sky full of clouds’, local member Jennifer Neville’s prize-winning entry in the recent Big Story competition. There was also a ‘round the screens’ chance to catch up on clubs’ activities.

Cynthia Ashworth, Crosby’s link co-ordinator, said: “We had a relaxing evening of fun and friendship. Although we may not yet meet in person, we’re determined to maintain our Soroptimist contacts – all over the world.

“Thank you to all members of the Keighley club for their hard work and ‘virtual’ hospitality.”
