Sunshine, Coffee – and a Potty

Crosby’s Soroptimists recently held a coffee morning as a summer fundraiser.

Pam McKee, Fundraising Team Leader said: “Glorious weather ensured a relaxing outdoor occasion. Many thanks to our member Sheila, who opened up her lovely garden for us.

“We raised £236 which will add to the funds that we distribute to local organisations each March.”

As a ‘fun’ game, club member Sandy Taylor set up ‘Ping Pong Potty’ and challenged everyone to ‘go potty’. Fundraising on this theme is ongoing until World Toilet Day on 19th November.

Sandy said: “Crosby’s Soroptimists have an informal ‘toilet twinning partnership’ with our friendship link club SI Jesi, in Italy.

“We raised £54 at the coffee morning – that’s almost half way to our target of £120. We’ll then be able to ‘twin’ a toilet – and make an amazing difference to a family’s life.”
