Leigh Soroptimists with Christmas guestsFor several years Leigh & District Soroptimists have provided transport for people attending the local Park Tearooms on Christmas Day.

Volunteers at the Tearooms provided lunch, food hampers and gifts for approximately 30 guests of all ages who would normally spend Christmas Day alone.

All the items for the event were donated by businesses and residents in the town. Even the turkeys were cooked at the local Fire Station kitchen. It was a real team effort.

South Lancashire Region President (and Leigh club member) Margaret Molyneux said, “Our members stepped into this role because there were no appropriate public services. We have found that the pleasure, companionship and merrymaking make the commitment so worthwhile.

“We are proud to be able to help people in our own community.”
