Lourier Outreach with Life Matters and Shine: The Soroptomists came to visit. August 2010

  Lourier are one of our Outreach schools, based in Retreat, and we met with the Soroptomists this morning for a book handover.This afternoon I received an e mail reporting back on the visit from Lisette of the Soroptomists. I thought I would share this with you. 'This morning we handed over the first part of the funds which we raised at our Lipstick and Lace event at the Laurier Primary school in Steenberg.
These funds have been used to purchase an outreach pack which the Link Liz, will be using at this school for the paired reading and shared reading programme.These kind of events definitely give me energy and that is something I would like all members to focus on as we have a great club with many members doing a great job.Thank you to you all, Love, Lisette.'
The Soroptomists donated R12000 to ur Outreach programme. It is so heartening to see the energy around Shine; witnessing the joining- the- dots to organisations, whose 'whole is greater than the sum of its' parts' is very empowering for all involved.
