It’s always good to hear about people raising money for the causes we Soroptimists support. So we congratulate Mary I Tobin, who recently raised £175 for Your Sanctuary by selling the jam she makes, notably at the recent Mela fair in Woking.
SI Woking plans to hold an event in October this year to raise money for Your Sanctuary. Look for more details on our Club meetings and events page.
We were pleased to see this White Ribbon campaign poster in Woking’s Jubilee Square on 16 July 2022, with its important message.
Reduce Plastic Waste
The members of SI Woking help to reduce such waste by collecting their medical blister packets for recycling. It is possible to recycle the packaging, although the options are limited at the moment.
This year, on the Soroptimist Day of Action, July 16, Soroptimists raised awareness about the need to reduce single-use plastic waste. In cooperation with Woking Environment Action, we collected empty medical blister packets at the WeAct Hub in Woking. The many hundreds of blister packs we collected will be recycled through the Superdrug scheme.
We would like to thank all those who visited the WeAct Hub to bring in their blister packets and the WeAct Hub for hosting this event.
