For our Platinum celebration we held a Pre-Loved Clothes sale. Thank you everyone for coming and bringing along your friends and much loved clothes to recycle to a new home and at the same time raise funds for our charities. We raised an amazing £450 plus.
A big thank you Vanessa for being our amazing host and for everyone getting into the spirit of the evening. We raised a toast to Her Majesty the Queen and to her hard unstinting work, an inspiriing woman to be inspired by and we had some lovely patriotic dishes to enjoy with our drink.
As Soroptimists we believe in recycling, reducing waste and this event ticked those boxes for us. And the clothes left over are being donated to Age UK MK, an independent local charity here in MK to sell in their shops to raise much needed funds for the vital services they provide to our community.
And it was lovely to be able to have as one of our guests, Kathy Howard, the Welfare Manager at The Winter Night Shelter MK. We were able to donate another 3 Clean Start buckets to help each family/resident when they are able to move out into their own homes. Clean start buckets, donated by Dunelm MK provide much needed cleaning essentials, which when your finances are very tight are expensive items to purchase.
You can have fun events, enjoy your self whilst doing good by raising much needed funds for our hard working local charities who are seeing siginficant increases on the servicdes they provide. Want to find friendship, have a good time whilst also finding purpose in helping others, why not join us.
