SI Bridgend took part if the Awareness Day for local organisations in the Bridgend area on Saturday. This was an excellent opportunity to publicise Soroptimist International as well as highlight the many local, national and international service projects that the Bridgend members are involved in.
Under the headings of ‘Educate, Empower, Enable’ a number of projects were highlighted including the International Women’s Day event, the Trafficking Conference hosted by the club, the Knitting project for Mothers for Africa, our regular Teas for the Elderly, sponsorship of young girls’ education in Cape Verde and the Water Filtration project in Pakistan.
Fun and friendship was also conveyed with photos of members visiting our friendship link club in Finland, our Christmas Tree at the town’s Christmas Tree Festival and the trip to Hay Festival.
The display generated a great deal of interest and discussion from visitors to the event and we received a number of enquiries about membership.
A lovely day and a good opportunity to spread the word about Soroptimist International.
