President’s message 2016-17

Rose Hutchinson became President of the club in April 2016.

Our work this year will continue to support the Soroptimist theme Women Inspiring Action, transforming lives.

To do this we will be supporting the new Soroptimist campaign Meru Women’s Garden Project.  The project runs from 2016-2019 and aims to provide agricultural advice on self-sufficiency to women in central Kenya and also provides solar cookers and water tanks.  This project works with the charity Child.org.  We will be holding a fundraising event on July 20th.

We will continue to support the Shakespeare Marathon, Mary’s Meals and Operation Christmas Child and there will be opportunities to attend the annual SIGBI conference in Malta.

A delegation from the club will also be visiting Hilversum in The Netherlands, one of our friendship link clubs, and meeting there with ladies from SI Ancona, Italy, another of our friendship link clubs.

Stratford-upon-Avon & District club members are active and, importantly, full of fun and friendship.  We are delighted to welcome new members.  Contact us if you would like more information or would like to come along to one of our meetings.
