Activities Emmanuel House

Collecting Sanitary Ware for homeless women currently staying at Emmanuel House


Moving to a new home? Sometimes we need house cleaning materials. Imagine you are leaving a Women’s Refuge in Nottingham and have NOTHING to clean with.
SI Nottingham members therefore put together moving on packs with essential items. Here we are assembling them, and having a good chat at the same time!


Two Chai evenings raised a whopping £300 to support 3 projects that aim to support the UN International day for the elimination of violence against women – www.thecircle.ngo, www.chaiday.org.

 

One of the group meals was hosted by two Sues, and attended by other SI Nottingham Soroptimists and friends and guests. The ladies had a fabulous meal and concluded by raising their chai cups in friendship! They all wore something orange as part of the theme for the SIGBI awareness raising campaign.

In another part of Nottingham the other meal was hosted by Lisa and Affi who also had a fabulous evening with some of the SI Nottingham members & husbands #chaiday2019 project to raise money for women that have been victims of honour based/ relationship violence. Lisa cooked a 3 course Indian meal with appetisers with Chai to finish.
