Soroptimist International. Ellesmere Port & District
President’s Welcome Message
My name is Eilish Trow and I have been a member of SI Ellesmere Port & District for 7 years. I was President in 2014 and now have the pleasure and privilege of taking up this role again.
I will be supporting two main charities this year: MQ Mental Health Research and The Port Grocery. MQ is a relatively new charity, set up to research mental health and look for new ways to tackle the growing problem of mental illness. My mum experienced long term mental health difficulties and as it is the tenth anniversary of her death this year, I have chosen this charity in order to do something positive in her memory.
The Port Grocery is a local charity which sells excess and near ‘best before’ date food donated by local supermarkets to Ellesmere Port residents. £4 will buy at lest £20 of groceries. This scheme not only helps people on low incomes but also fights the war on waste.
