Soroptimists Spreading the Word

Soroptimist Display at Cowbridge Library

SI Bridgend was invited to put up a display in Cowbridge Library for the month of June to spread the word about Soroptimist International.

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 Literacy Project with Barnardo’s at Parc Prison, our International Women’s Day walk, our Toilet Twinning activity – and sponsorship of a toilet block in Pakistan – the Knitting project for Mothers for Africa, our regular Teas for the Elderly and sponsorship of young girls’ education in Cape Verde.

Fun and friendship was also conveyed with photos of members celebrating our 70th anniversary as a Club, visiting the annual SIGBI conference in Cardiff last October and our Christmas Tree at the town’s Christmas Tree Festival.

The display has been generating a great deal of interest and visitors to the library have been reading past Soroptimist News magazines and taking the leaflets and publicity material available..

Thank you to Eileen Bailey, our Publicity Officer, for organising this opportunity, it is a great way to spread the word about Soroptimist International.
