The hardworking members of SI Perth Executive Committee met recently to plan the next few month’s activities to ensure we inspire action and transform
SI Perth usually meet at 6:30 pm in the Royal George Hotel, Perth, on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from September to June.
The meetings include an interesting speaker, update on the good causes we work with, a small amount of business and time to chat. Guests are welcome at all meetings.
The formalities of the evening are concluded by 9:00 pm when some of us retire to the lounge for coffee, tea or a glass of wine and a great deal of chatter.
Social events include Christmas party, Summer Outing are held locally.
This year our fundraising events have been, so far, 1 week of a pop-up Charity Shop which raised over £4400.
Please check out our President’s message and our Programme Action (What we do) pages to find out a whole lot more about this dynamic and active club, our activities and our contribution to our global society.
As President of SI Perth for a second term after a 4 year break I am delighted to be given the opportunity to explore further opportunities for SI Perth to support our local Community and the wider Community.
The SIGBI Presidents theme for this year is to Step Up, Lead the Way.
This seems to be a very apt mantra for us in SI Perth, we have over the years developed very positive partnerships with other clubs and organisations.
As a dedicated, motivated and enthusiastic team, SI Perth have a proven record of Stepping Up, rising to many challenges and offering support to many diverse local, national and international projects.
I believe it is now time to Lead the Way allowing more Women the opportunity to engage in our philosophy of Educating, Enabling and Empowering women and children globally.
For the Presidents Charity I have chosen to support Perth Women’s Aid whose main role and remit is to:
- Promote women’s equality and children’s rights
- Campaign for responses which actively prevent violence against women
- Work to ensure that services are available to women, young people and children with experience of domestic abuse
I proudly look forward to what this term will achieve through the support of all SI Perth members and those we engage with. Who knows where the journey of Leading the Way will take us?
