Soroptimists honour pledge to support BAWSO

BAWSO has been our President’s charity for 2023-2024. BAWSO is a charity that supports ethnic minorities across Wales affected by domestic violence and other forms of abuse.

At the start of her year as President, Lesley welcomed Nancy Lidubwi, policy manager at BAWSO, to a club meeting to tell members about the work that the charity undertakes. With a focus on issues concerning violence against women, trafficking, FGM and modern day slavery, BAWSO aligns well with our Soroptimist aims and values and President Lesley was pleased to pledge the Club’s support.

Bridgend Soroptimists were able to honour that pledge at a Presentation Night at the end of Lesley’s year in office and to present Nancy with a cheque for £1550.00.

Nancy was delighted to receive our donation and confirmed that it would be a huge boost to the work that they undertake.

We look forward to continuing to support BAWSO in the future and are currently exploring opportunities for members to get involved in practical ways to support the women and children in BAWSO refuges.
