Soroptimist Nantwich & District raises a wonderful £3000 to support Local Charities
At our meeting on Tuesday evening President Pat Harborth presented a Cheque to Major Steven from Salvation Army for £675. This money was raised at our two Modern Slavery Events. The first took place in September 2017 at the Civic Hall Nantwich, where we also raised £100 for ”Classrooms in the Clouds”. The second Event took place in Nantwich Town Centre for anti – slavery day in October….
In November at the home of member Anne Thompson we held our Annual Jewellery Event. £420 was raised for Macmillan – President Pat presented the cheque to Anne Holland from Macmillan
We have, as a club supported CWA Cheshire Without Abuse for many years, every Christmas we give presents to Women who, by necessity need too stay in the Refuge over the Festive period. This year we were thrilled to be able to raise £900 in addition for CWA at our Annual Quiz Night Event.
Each year we support Nantwich & Crewe at their Christmas lunches with £100 for each of the Events. Four Nantwich club members also helped serve the lunches on Christmas Day.
YMCA Crewe is a new charity to receive our support, and we were thrilled to raise £842 for their After School & Brunch club at our Bridge Drive in January 2018. Richard Holmes, Development Officer at YMCA Crewe says: “We try to get involved in children’s lives as early as possible. Those from disadvantaged backgrounds often don’t get enough food during the holiday periods so this is a fun way to provide for them”.
Huge thanks to the organisers of these events and to all who supported.
