Soroptimist International of Rugby

We were joined by Soroptimist International of Rugby in December to raise awareness of the use of landmines and here is what they had to say:

'On December 7th Soroptimist International of Rugby had a stall in Rugby Central to collect signatures in a petition against the use of landmines. It was also to highlight the terrible effect that they have on innocent people. Although the UK has banned them, the effects are still being felt in many places across the world. Handicap International are supplying limbs and counselling to the victims.

We did not ask people for money just for their support and we gave out leaflets. We had a very positive response and we are very grateful to the management of Rugby Central for allowing the Rugby Soroptimists for the use of Rugby Central.'
