Soroptimist International - Bolton

Soroptimist International of Bolton is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to SI Bolton

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.

As well as the “serious stuff” we have plenty of time to socialise with each other and with members of other local clubs at fund raising events, tea parties and trips.

Why not check our Club Diary to see what we are currently doing or look at our latest news to give yourself an idea of the things we enjoy.

The Club meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at our venue, the Friend’s Meeting House, Silverwell St. Bolton. We have secure parking which is always an advantage. You are most welcome to attend any of our meetings . For more information look at our “Where we Meet” page or contact us via the “Contact” page.

You can rest assured that you will be made most welcome!
