  Saturday 18 July is Soroptimist Day of Action and members of Soroptimist International of Newcastle upon Tyne have been staying connected throughout the Covid19 crisis and continue to support and connect with projects local, national and international. S.I. Newcastle President, Christine Jones said: “Soroptimists in Newcastle upon Tyne are working hard to support two local foodbanks: Newcastle West End Foodbank and the Newcastle East Foodbank by making donations of food, toilet rolls and money. In addition, S.I. Newcastle Secretary, Cris Young, has been writing to local supermarkets to ask about the possibility of on-line customers being able to donate to Foodbanks with their weekly shop. At our last Zoom meeting we raised our cups to our local food banks to thank their staff and volunteers for keeping our community fed in this time of crisis’’. So do look out for our posts on Facebook,
