£1000 Donation to Community Pantry Supporting Vulnerable Families

Ten members of the Nantwich club had a very active day at Morrisons store in Crewe where they purchased over £1000 of products to donate to the charity Chance – Changing Lives.The charity has a social supermarket “Community Pantry” which supports 140 local vulnerable families and supplied uswith a list of basic items which are always in demand. It was a major shopping expedition as the Soroptimists had to gather about 70 of each of the basic items and ended up with very full and very unwieldy trolleys. All the goods were loaded in Chance’s van who very gratefully took them away to fill the Pantry’s shelves.It was a real joint project as Morrissons came up trumps by first sorting the items and then giving us a 15% discount. Although we hadn’t been able to do any major fund raising events last year because of COVID we examined our end of year bank accounts and decided that we had an excess of £1000 that should go to charity. We are very pleased to donate this amount to such a worthwhile charity as Chance.
