The group has adapted to the UK’s lockdown and is still helping those in need.
Weston’s Soroptimists have continued to serve the community despite lockdown restrictions.
Video conference technology, such as Zoom, has allowed the group to contact each other and decide its next charitable cause.
Alongside domestic abuse service Next Link, the Soroptimists made donations to the children of domestic abuse victims.
Clothes, toys, art supplies and books were sourced and donated to those who needed them most.
