Buxton Soroptimists

Members of Soroptimist International, Buxton and District have been busy during the COVID19 lockdown.  

Some individuals have been helping elderly, sick or vulnerable people, by doing errands.  Many have contributed, sewn and provided aprons and fabric facemasks. 40 of these have been donated to the local Scrum Hub charity, who will distribute them to local carers who need them desperately.

Joint President Sue and her husband have been growing and selling vegetable plants to local people in Tideswell.  So far they have donated £90 to Tideswell First Responders, £30 to Chesterfield Hospital (Calow), £60 to Tideswell Surgery and have £70 to donate to Sheffield's Royal Hallamshire Hospital shortly.

In all these efforts the Soroptimists have abided by the distancing guidelines, but still been able to help others.
