Caring and Collecting

Crosby’s Soroptimists have yet again shown their support for local charity Sefton Women’s and Children’s Aid (SWACA).

Members responded to an appeal for children’s clothes. Families arriving at the charity’s refuge sometime come with very few personal possessions. The refuge needs a stock of clothes for children and teenagers that can be given out in such an emergency.

The Soroptimists donated a large selection of clothes for children of all ages. Arrangements were then made to deliver everything to SWACA.

Shirley Smith, who co-ordinated the collection said: “All these clothes will be valued by refuge staff as they help mothers and children in distress.

“Our next effort for SWACA will be to collect small items for children – such as toiletries, colouring books or toys – that the refuge can hold in readiness.”
