What Our Clubs are Collecting
WHAT THE SOROPTIMIST SOUTHWEST AND CHANNEL ISLANDS REGION IS COLLECTING
This is the amazing list that shows how much is being collected by Clubs in our South West and Channel Islands Region. Donations go to local, regional, national and international charities and organisations that share our purpose. It will give our Clubs ideas of what they could collect and who they can help, beyond their own collection. Hopefully, by working together even more can be achieved. Please share this list with all members and ask friends and family to see if they have any unwanted items which could be recycled to help others. Remember to label who the donation is for please and also put your Club name on the label.
