WHO WE ARE
The Eastbourne Soroptimists are a friendly, lively group of women. Like our parent organisation Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI), our aim is to help women and girls worldwide to achieve their potential and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities. But we also put a strong emphasis on friendship and mutual support.
The Eastbourne Club members are all in one of 3 teams, each of which takes on the running of the Club’s activities for 4 months of the year.
Our twice-monthly meetings vary in character and may include some business, a speaker, or a service activity, but we also meet frequently on a more social basis, for outings and meals, often to raise money for one of the projects we support (read more about these).
Take a look at the Club’s Diary page to find out more about our meetings.
We also have a Book Club, a Writers’ Group and a Coffee Club.
As part of a large international organisation, we have developed special links with sister Clubs in Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, France, Japan, Denmark and the UK. At the moment, this mainly involves visits, but we have recently completed a knitting project in cooperation with our sister Club in Townsville, Australia, and have joined up with some of our other sister Clubs to raise money for international projects.
Early in 2014 we celebrated our Club’s 60th Anniversary with a special weekend of events, welcoming members from our Link Clubs worldwide and from other Clubs in South-East England.
We welcome newcomers, so if you’d like to find out more about us or come to one of our meetings, please use the CONTACT US tab at the top of these web-pages.
