Llandudno and District Soroptimists attended the recent Regional Meeting and lunch held at the Imperial Hotel, Llandudno on Saturday 9th September. The Regional Meeting was well attended, with 13 members of Llandudno and District in attendance. Delegates were treated to an excellent speaker, Rebecca Morgan-Brennan who gave and interesting talk about her hair loss and wig supplying business in Chester and North Wales and their work with the Little Princess Trust. Llandudno and District also set up a jewellery stall in support of Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline. Delegates were able to purchase new and used donated jewellery in support of this worthy cause. This further supported our fundraising for this charity which has so far this year taken place at both the Bank Holiday weekends. If you missed out we’ll be back at our monthly Coffee Morning taking place on Thursday 21st September at The Links
On Thursday 27th July 2023, a group of Llandudno And District Soroptimists had the opportunity to visit the RNLI station in Llandudno. A fascinating place to visit, and see both the in shore and off shore boats in situ. Particularly fascinating was inside of the boat. Following a collection by the Soroptimists, we presented a cheque for £130 to the station.
On Thursday 22nd June 2023, the Llandudno and District Soroptimists met for their summer BBQ at Colwyn Bay Cricket Club. A total of £406 was raised on the evening, to be split between Conwy Food Bank and Conwy Clothing Bank. Thanks to the Ukulele Band for providing the wonderful entertainment and Just a Bite Catering for the delicious food.
Recently, some of our Llandudno and District Soroptimist members visited the Soroptimist Memorial at the Arboretum. It was a lovely day out, with beautiful weather and they were joined by Regional President Susan Heywood.
It’s wonderful to see the blossom tree that the Llandudno and District Soroptimists planted in 2021 in full bloom. What a colourful addition to the skyline up in Happy Valley, Llandudno. We will be keeping our fingers crossed for Haulfre Gardens and Happy Valley who are a finalist in Britain in Bloom 2023!
