Welcome to Bromley Soroptimists
We’ve just changed our name! We have valued our link with Beckenham demonstrated by our name and we’ve had it for a very long time-but we are aware that prospective members and organisations throughout the borough may not realise that we have a membership from all over the borough. So we became Bromley SI from October 2017, not without some regrets but with optimism for our future.
The Bromley club is a lively group combining the enjoyment of friendship and social gatherings with fund raising and our programme action activities. The club was founded 60 years ago; Croydon Club is our ‘mother club’ and we retain close links. Whilst the majority of our members live in the London Borough of Bromley we welcome women working in the area or living in other areas.
Meetings are held in the Beckenham Methodist Church on the first and third Mondays of each month except August. We welcome visitors to our speaker meetings so we can share the expertise of our speakers and the refreshments afterwards. Please see our programme page for more details. Members also meet together in smaller groups according to their interests- for example a book group and two Mah Jong groups.
We support local, national and international charities and projects through fundraising and by giving individual and group service.
