The members of Soroptimist International of Stafford are not letting a pandemic get them down! Although we cannot meet face to face, there have been numerous Zoom meetings, plus at least 4 very active What’sApp groups on various topics and a Facebook page that is getting quite a lot of attention!
So, what are Stafford Soroptimists doing?
- Exchanging messages, news, useful tips and photos on our social What’sApp group, keeping everyone in touch with each other, amused and informed. We have several members living on their own through the lockdown, and this What’sApp group is especially important for them (though we all enjoy it!)
- Sewing scrubs for a Care Home. To date, 45 sets of scrubs have been sent off with more in the pipeline, and we wait to hear more about sizes and other requirements before starting on a second round.
- Singing! Under the expert leadership of one of our members who is a professional singer, many of us are enjoying a regular distance sing-along. (We hope our families and neighbours are enjoying it too!)
- A number of members have volunteered their services to the NHS and other local support groups. Many of our members regularly volunteer at Drake Hall Prison, providing refreshments for prisoners’ visitors, and sadly at the moment this has had to be put on hold.
We can’t wait to get back to our normal programme, and will keep this website up to date with developments. Watch this space!
