In recent months, Crosby Soroptimists worked creatively to serve our local community, and beyond – and even to care for ourselves.
Walking Back to Happiness – This was a personal challenge for each club member throughout 2021. We were addressing our physical and mental wellbeing in difficult times. So while we exercised by ‘walking back to happiness‘ we also savoured the delights of our area – and snapped the occasional photo.
Waterloo Primary School – A ‘chance encounter’ and a subsequent Zoom meeting with the headteacher revealed the school’s educational and social challenges during the pandemic. Members immediately resolved to fund a number of laptops to support children’ home learning. The word has spread! Continuing the education link-up, several Soroptimists are now volunteer ‘Reading Partners’ at the school.
Knit for Peace – Members are knitting and crocheting squares, sewing them together, and adding a neat border. It’s a team effort! We have now completed 43 blankets and sent them to ‘Knit for Peace‘. That’s since March 2921. More are ‘in progress’.
South Sefton Foodbank – We continue to make regular food donations.
