Cardiff Conference 2017

Members Sian Kent, Alecs Peate-Evans, Joan Thomas, Eirwen Jones, Mair Jones, Marian Jones, Diane Davies, President Gwen Ellis Jones and President Elect Andy Hawkins attended the Conference based in the Millennium Centre, Cardiff from 26-28th October. They were delighted by the company of over 1000 fellow Soroptimists from Britain and across the world. Key note speakers included Dame Kathryn Grainger – Olympic Champion, Mandy Hickson – Female Tornado Pilot and Rebecca Lewin – Director at Plan International whom were all very well received for their good humour and inspirational tales of their life stories which included some huge challenges to overcome (and succeed!) . Members welcomed the opportunity to learn about awesome projects being undertaken by clubs across the world through presentations, exhibitions and evening get togethers.

Gwen and Sian also helped as stewards during the event
