We’ve been hanging out washing lines and tying T-shirts to trees to draw attention to the massive impact fast fashion is having on the planet. Fast Fashion is second only to oil as the worlds biggest polluter. We were to hold a conference this September, funded by a grant from the National Lottery #CelebrateNationalLottery25, but due to Covid we have had to find a different, and as it happens, a more fun way to highlight this issue. We are pleased to say it has had a lot of attention.The Festival of Imagination has been a great help, hosting one of the intended speakers at the conference Charlotte Watkivs Living a Zero Waste Life Soroptimist International – The Wrekin Branch
A great way to spend International Women’s day, with friends, neighbours and fellow Soroptimists who gave up their Sunday roast for a bowl of soup, raising £209 towards supporting 2 projects. Women at risk from domestic violence locally. Chora Chori project confronting violence against children in Nepal including rape and sexual exploitation.
CoVid has put the breaks on our Telford 50 Challenge, now lockdown has been eased we can continue……. The next leg leaves The Wrekin behind and takes us from Lawley, via Horsehay, to Oakengates. It is amazing to find some beautiful green spaces where, when passing by car, the areas look built up and these green havens are missed. Telford_50_trail_Info_leaflet
