Club members give service at the Calvert Trust Centre, Bassenthwaite throughout the summer, by making the beds each weekend. One member, Maureen Foy from Keswick, decided to help further by raising money to provide new bedding for the new season. She held various events such as pie and pea suppers at her home and raised the great total of £900. A cheque for this amount was handed over at the centre and members present were thanked with coffee, scones and cake!


The highlight of the month was the annual party where members enjoyed a wonderful buffet supper, played games, worked on a quiz, sang, chatted and the evening finally ended with a seasonable story. So now we look forward to a new year of service, fun and friendship.


Soroptimist International of Cockermouth and District meets on the first and third Thursday each month at VeeVa!. If this sounds like the sort of service organization to which you’d like to belong, or for further information, please mail our Secretary via the Contact Tab above or see our Facebook page. There is also an informal coffee morning on the second Monday of the month, at the Lakes Home Centre in Cockermouth at 10.30. Why not come along to that? We don’t discuss business we just chat!
