Fund raising for MacMillan nurses

Saturday 22 September 2018 – Macmillan Coffee Morning

Some thirty participants enjoyed a wonderful spread of cakes and biscuits whilst socialising.
The sale of tickets, jewellery, books and an excellent raffle, donations brought in an impressive £335 for MacMillan.







Fund raising for Two Saints
Afternoon Tea – 28 July 2018
Twenty four soroptimists and friends gathered for a traditional afternoon tea in Tref’s garden. The weather was perfect, the choice of cakes impressive and there was lots to talk about – making for a very enjoyable afternoon!
Thank you to Tref and all the helpers who made this such a successful event. The entry tickets, Bring & Buy sale, jewellery sale and raffle raised nearly £200 for the Two Saints charity to be used to purchase items for the resettlement boxes.


Women in Science Event at Richard Taunton College – 14 June 2018


Girls from Southampton secondary schools attended a Soroptimist STEM event at Richard Taunton College for the second year. They heard from eleven STEM ambassadors about their exciting careers in a wide range of science related areas. An inspiring morning which we’ll repeat next year!



We have made recent visits to Two Saints and so far four further resettlement boxes have been delivered as well as clothes for the women.

Six new resettlement boxes are to be made up fairly soon.  For the Christmas carrier bags hats, gloves, and scarves are being assembled.

See Our Projects section for more information on this charity.
