Harrogate and District Soroptimists are once again delighted to be supporting Welcome to Wetherby and organising the Charity Shop Christmas Shop Window Competition. The judging took place in early December against the criteria of Innovation, Impact and the Spirit of Christmas. The judges were impressed how the charity shops utilize their limited resources to create windows that appeal to young and old alike as well as entice customers into their shops. Three shops were short listed and invited to the Welcome to Wetherby Christmas Shop Window presentation at the Town Hall on the 15th December in the presence of the Mayor of Wetherby Cllr Norma Harrington. Club President Pat Shore was pleased to present the Winners Certificate to Louisa Alan, Manager of OXFAM. Martin House Shop and Cheshire Home Shop were also Highly Commended and presented with their certificates. President Pat Shore said, ‘We really appreciate the work the Charity Organisation do in making a difference to the lives of others. Their volunteers work very hard throughout the year and this is one way we can recognise the work they do’.
