Welcome to the website of Soroptimist International of Bolton. Our Club was first chartered in 1938 and even in lockdown we were able to celebrate our 83 years of service to women and girls in Bolton and the world.
Ours is a worldwide organisation of women who work to advance the status of women at local, national and international level. We do this through local and national projects and by raising awareness of issues affecting women and girls around the world.

Our meetings usually involve planning for our projects or finding ways to help women and girls world wide, but we have plenty of time for friendship and fun with members of other clubs at fund raising events, tea parties and visits.
For nearly two years our Club Diary was empty – but regular emails and phone calls and Zoom sessions kept the Club together, and games like Call my Bluff and a Balloon Debate were enjoyable to cheer our isolation during lockdown.
Now we have a monthly meeting at our new venue the Mercure Hotel on the A6 at Blackrod (BL6 5RU).
If you would like to attend any of our meetings please contact us via the “Contact” page or email our Secretary Jane Hemingway : email@example.com
You will be made most welcome!
