Uplifting

Soroptimist International of Gore president Maree Gentle and secretary Deborah Wood unload some of the bunches of flowers group members prepared last week.

More than 100 bunches of flowers were made to mark the centenary of the international movement and given out to people in Riversdale, Mataura and Gore.

The Gore group celebrated its 40th birthday last year.

Mrs Wood said members gathered flowers from their own gardens for the bunches.

“It’s appropriate after lockdown we were able to give the community flowers to help uplift their spirits,” she said.
