North West Region Soroptimists and Friends
On Saturday 7th September 2013, despite a less than encouraging weather forecast, about 20 members of Soroptimist International of the North West Region gathered on the High Street car Park in Garstang.
They were taking part in the Annual Regional walk which this year, was in aid of NSPCC. The members were accompanied by friends and one very brave and exceedingly well behaved dog (he’d been attending training classes!)
The walk followed the Castle walk route and was led by Garstang member, Maureen Chippendale who managed to get everyone back safely (although slightly damp) to the United Reformed Church Hall where they enjoyed tea and strawberry scones provided by Garstang club members.
The Garstang club raised £59.75 in sponsorship for the NSPCC.
