St Albans and District Soroptimists supported the Harpenden Lions at the annual Harpenden Highland Gathering selling the Prize Draw Charity Raffle tickets. This is a partnership arrangement where Soroptimists share the workload with Harpenden Lions to great effect.
Pictured here are Soroptimists Debbie Tankard, Catherine Moore, Denise Powell, Club Mascot Sally Bear (of course!) and Jane Slatter – just part of the team of volunteers who worked through the day selling tickets to win 25 great prizes with a value of almost £1000! It was a beautiful (if very hot!) day and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves doing good while having a good time – what perfect partnership work!
