Welcome to Soroptimist International Stockton-on-Tees. I am honoured to represent the Club as the President in its 59th year. Our theme this year is “Education”. We will continue to support the Meserani Project and our Past President, Susan Walker will be travelling out to Tanzania in August. The main aim of this project is to educate Africa’s children and Susan is hoping to meet a trainee teacher we are sponsoring. Other projects include support for the Stockton Physically Handicapped Club and the Mary Thompson Fund, a local charity helping destitute asylum seekers. These are just a few of the many local, national and international projects we take part in under the umbrella of our Programme Action.
We firmly believe that Soroptimism has much to offer any woman who wishes to join an organisation which focuses on women’s issues; that supports local, national and international projects; that raises funds – and does this in a FUN way, amongst members who rapidly become good friends.
We look forward to a productive year, with some fun along the way!
