Halifax Soroptimists Adopt Emma’s Mission
Soroptimist International of Halifax have adopted Emma’s Mito Mission as their charity for 2020/21.
Despite the challenging constraints of the coronavirus pandemic, the members of the Soroptimists will be raising awareness and supporting Emma’s mission up until next May. ‘We like to support a local charity and Emma’s mission is firmly rooted in Halifax and Calderdale’, says president Jean Lumb, ‘but we know that any funds we can help raise for research will have far-reaching implications and help people across the UK, and internationally too.’
Christine Beal, Emma’s mum and mission lead says, ‘We are delighted to be chosen as a lesser known charity for a little known illness and are very grateful to Halifax Soroptimists for whatever they will be able to do to support us.
