Soroptimists can party – anywhere. SI Crosby held a ‘virtual’ fun and friendship evening to usher in the festive season.
Fun – puzzles, quizzes, heads’n’tails (with masks), readings and a fiendish set of dingbats. A blast from the past – Kim’s game – was challenging!
There were musical interludes from two of the club’s musicians. Jill Boggan presented an atmospheric ‘In the bleak mid winter’ on the harp, with stunning winter backdrops. Then Ann Dickinson set toes tapping with seasonal favourites on the piano.
There were breakout sessions where small groups could chat easily. Plus, everyone congratulated Clare Baxter on 30 years’ Soroptimist service.
President Chris read out a letter of thanks from Ruth Baldwin, Headteacher at Waterloo Primary School. SI Crosby has funded laptops at this local school to support pupils’ home-learning when they are self-isolating. The club is also hoping to fund some more.
Club’s executive team had generously provided Christmas hampers which were raffled at the party. Over £300 was raised for the Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool.
Co-ordinated by Linda Key, many members worked behind the scenes to make the party a success. President Chris upped her technical knowledge in order to fit all the elements together. It was a team effort. Happy Christmas!
