Welcome to the website of Soroptimist International of Bolton. Our Club was first chartered in 1938 and even in lockdown we can celebrate our 82 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 the past year our Club Diary has been empty – but regular emails and phone calls and Zoom sessions have kept the Club together, and games like Call my Bluff and a Balloon Debate were enjoyable to cheer our isolation.
The Club meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month, even though our venue, the Friend’s Meeting House is currently closed. If you would like to attend any of our meetings please contact us via the “Contact” page.
You will be made most welcome!
