Soroptimist Carol Singing at Harpenden station – fundraised more than £500 for the St Albans and Hertsmere Women’s Refuge – and marked Human Rights Day.

67-SI St Albans Carols Harpenden 2016WideWebThis year the group had to switch to Harpenden Station instead of St Albans at late notice so the £501.87 feels more like a million dollars! Thanks so much to the generous Harpenden Travellers, and to all the singers including some extra friends and supporters who joined us on the night. Recent funding cuts and increased demand mean that the Refuge needs additional funding now more than ever before.

This news was also reported in the St Albans and Harpenden Review

Afterwards many Club Members went to Pasta Cibo in Harpenden for a delicious meal, a welcome warm up and to wish one other season’s greetings!

Club Members also made donations of £58, in lieu of sending one another Christmas cards, to the International President’s annual December 10th appeal  ‘Educate To Lead: Nepal‘ addressing the human rights issues that follow a disaster.

Soroptimist International St Albans and District wish all of their supporters and friends a Merry Christmas and a happy and peaceful new year.
