Swindon Soroptimists started Christmas 2019 shopping early!!
Members and friends of Swindon Club kicked off Christmas with a fund raising Festive evening. Enjoying a glass and nibbles over 20 guests browsed handmade jewellery from Georgina Bowman, delicious luxury chocolates from Chocoholics, a wide selection of Flamingo cards and delightful children’s books from Debi Evans and Chantal Bourgonje.
The event was held to raise funds for Julia’s House hospice & Swindon Nelson Trust Women’s Centre, Vee the team lead at the Women’s Centre came with colleagues and gave short speech on the work that she and her team do to help and advise vulnerable women and thanked the Swindon Club for their continued support. A raffle of donated gifts added to the funds raised.
Zoe from Chocoholics demonstrated her range and gave out tasty samples to try.
With donations, the commissions and raffle all combined to raise £230 for Julia’s House hospice & Swindon Nelson Trust Women’s Centre.
