Three members of SI Bridgend travelled to Glasgow for the 81st Federation Conference. Keynote speakers included Jo Fairley, co-founder of Green & Black organic chocolate, Dame Stella Rimington, Director General of the Security Services (MI5) from 1992 to 1996 and Sarah Montague, BBC broadcaster and presenter. They were joined by HRH The Princess Royal who commended Soroptimists on their work across the world and particularly in the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake.
It was also fascinating to hear of the Programme Action work being done by members and Clubs across the Federation – all living up to the conference theme “Delivering the Difference”. A very stimulating, interesting and fun few days.
