So what have we been up to during lockdown?

We might be in lockdown but we’re certainly not shut down!

Most importantly during lockdown, we’re keeping in touch to make that difference to our own members.  With SIGBI President Isobel’s message firmly in mind  ‘This is a time to when friendship and caring come into their own’.

Lockdown isn’t stopping us from getting up to all sorts!

Are you ready for this?   Get set go!

We’re  –

Creating cards for special people, shopping for those in isolation, phone calls, chatting from a safe distance.   WhatsApping – is that even a verb?!   Zooming has taken on a whole new meaning!   Because Covid 19 might mean that we can’t meet as we usually do we can still stay social.

Future Soroptimist?

Some of us are cooking for Molly’s Meals.   This has been set up by a young lady called Molly in Kenilworth.  She’s been helping people self isolating as a result of the pandemic before any community systems were started.   Definitely a potential Soroptimist in the making!


Scrubbing for the NHS

And some have joined Warwickshire Scrubbers and Scrub Hub North Warwickshire.

Sewing machines dusted down, duvets and sheets, sewing stashes ransacked.   All made up into scrubs, scrubs bags and headbands to support our local NHS and frontline health professionals.



Not forgetting our regular Thursday 8pm Clap for Key Workers
