On the 12th of September Joint Presidents of SI Durham, Sue Percival and Geraldine Hudson held a Garden Party at Sue’s home. Although the day was rather cold there was a very warm welcome and enough chairs and tables for everyone to be accommodated in Sue’s lovely garden. Food had been supplied by members to go with the warming cups of tea or coffee.
Both Immediate Regional Past President Joyce and Regional President Christine attended and it was also lovely to see some of Sue’s neighbours enjoying the afternoon too! Apart from the food there was a tombola, book stall, plant stall and part of the 100metres of silver coins collection.
The afternoon was finished off with a piece of cake, cut by R.P. Christine and marking 100 years of Soroptimism. The total made was in excess of £400. This will go with other monies collected, to SI Durham’s Presidents’ Charity; The Rainbow Trust. Future monies raised with go to a charity for Endometriosis.
