SI Swindon in action

Well we and 25 Christmas gift bags only just fitted in to Santa Grotto at the Nelson Trust Women’s centre!  For the 8th year Swindon Soroptimists donated our 25 Christmas gift bags for the vulnerable women who use the Centre.  Each bag had 31 different items, ranging from toiletries to gloves and scarves to pads and chocolate!  We once again had great support from friends and also local Ladies Who Latte, Nordic Walking and WI Book Clubs.  The staff were very grateful with Carrie, Deputy Centre Manager commenting “We thank the Swindon Soroptimists for their amazing donation of all these lovely gifts for the women here. In time of hardship and especially this year they are most gratefully received.”
