Tamworth Soroptimists joint treasurer Linda Scott proudly shows off all the food we collected for our local food bank.
We usually collect food at our club meetings, but as this was not possible during the pandemic the collection was stored at Linda’s house. We have met in zoom meetings during the year where there have been presentations from Marie Ballard of the Hygiene Bank, Steve Hodgetts of Tamworth Community Together and Jane Walker of Purple Community Fund.
We usually hold our International evening about this time where donations are presented to the club’s chosen charities but as this event could not be held donations have been sent to SightSavers, The Hygiene Bank, The Samaritans, Water Aid, Tamworth Talking Newspaper, The Soroptimist Benevolent Fund and the International Presidents Appeal “The Road to Equality”
President Lyn Shiel’s chosen charity for the year is St Giles Hospice and Lyn will shortly be making the presentation at the hospice.
