Soroptimists’ Seasonal Service

Southport Soroptimists with parcels for homeless peopleSoroptimists in Southport have undertaken a pre-Christmas project to help people who are homeless.

Club members made up 55 packs of toiletries – and parcels of warm clothing – which will be given out at the local Alchemy centre.

Alchemy is part of Parenting 2000 in Southport; the centre opens during the festive period. Volunteers and staff serve hot meals and beverages to the homeless community and those who have financial problems.

SI Southport member Dorothy Lee-Ogden said, “Donations to Alchemy of toiletries and clothing, as well as food, are vital at this time of year. There are many local families and individuals who need support, so we feel it’s important to contribute to this community enterprise.”
