£830 Raised for CBCSG by M&Co Fashion Show!
The Fashion Show which was held at M&Co at Bodmin was in aid of our Cornwall Bowel Cancer Group Support Fund.

The club, which is Soroptimist International of St. Austell and District, is a club of women inspiring action and transforming lives by helping to Educate, Empower, and Enable girls and women in order to improve the lives of women and girls and support deserving causes, both in UK and World Wide!
This year at St. Austell, we had 2 Joint Presidents who decided that most of the Fund Raising activities would be to support Cancer Charities, and included our group as a deserving one. As well as our group the other charities which were supported were: The Children's Hospice SW, The Cove, Cancer Research UK, Cornwall Hospice Care, and in addition Friedrich's Ataxia Research! The overseas Project was mainly to support Water Aid to Third World countries. A series of Social events kept the club busy as well as happy, as we had several events such as a Tombola, a Garden Party, a Musical Evening, Soup Kitchen, a Golf Charity Even and the final event the Fashion Show, which was well supported and attended by 80 plus people.
Although Soroptimist International is a worldwide organisation, here in Cornwall we only have the one very enthusiastic club consisting of 36 to 40 ladies and we always welcome any new members.
