What’s a Stafford Soroptimist?

Our Stafford Club was established 75 years ago and our members reflect a variety of professions and skills. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Moat House Hotel, Acton Trussell, Stafford, ST17 0RJ. 

As a modern Club, our aim is to encourage members to utilise their skills and talents to help others. At the heart of it is a strong commitment towards Sharing, Team Motivation and Fun, whilst participating in SI Project Work.
