Our ongoing service and Projects
Each SI club develops its own particular interest. Our club has dedicated its activities to a variety of work in our community such as:
Skirting Science – an annual event. A day of interactive workshops put on by scientists from local businesses and academia to encourage girls to take up science. We hope to counteract the tendency for girls to think that subjects like maths, physics and engineering are just for boys.
Hospital Shop – every 4 weeks 2 of us do a stint in the local hospital shop run by the League of Friends.
RNLI shop – similarly some club members help in the RNLI shop on the seafront to fundraise for the Weston lifeboat team.
Cancer Research UK – one of our members sits on the local committee organising fundraising events in aid of this worthwhile charity.
Talking News for the Blind – another member reads news items to be recorded and distributed regularly to blind people in our area.
Windwhistle school – several club members attend this school in a deprived area on a weekly basis to help children on a one to one basis by listening to them read and engaging them in conversation.
Friends of the Weston Museum – two club members have a particular interest in supporting this museum which was under threat of closure for some time but now has been saved.
Women’s refuge – we support a local refuge, helping with supplies, when needed.
