Fylde 80th Year Launch Party

thermometerFylde Soroptimists’ “80 FOR 80” Launch

Members and friends of Fylde Soroptimists celebrated the start of their 80th year by launching the “80 for 80” Toilet Twinning project.  The event took place in the new Pavilion Café at AKS School, where Head of School Catering, Steve Shepherd, gave a masterclass in making canapés. Attendees enjoyed the delicious results with prosecco and elderflower cocktails.

The group raised £200 from the raffle – all prizes, including a microwave oven, a magnum of Bordeaux wine, an afternoon tea for two, hampers and bottles of fizz – were donated by friends.

A further £36 was raised from the sale of loo rolls and soap – all monies going into the toilet twinning fund.

A number of toilets were also pledged, bringing the total twinned to date to 20 – giving basic sanitation, hygiene training and clean water to 20 villages in third world areas.

Fylde Soroptimists will be holding further social events during the year and will also have a presence at local Club Days and venues in the Fylde.

We are off to a flying start – see also  Blackpool Gazette article.
