Welcome to Bromley Soroptimists
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. 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.
We support local, national and international charities and projects through fundraising and by giving individual and group service.
In 2017/18 we raised money for two main causes-
The RUSH PROJECT in Kenya- to build new toilets and a water supply for senior girls at the RUSH school so they can continue to attend school
BROMLEY BOROUGH FOODBANKS- to fund the fuel for the vehicle that’ s driven miles and miles to distribute food to the four Foodbank outlets in the Borough.
Our plans for 2018/2019
Bromley Borough Foodbanks- We plan to continue our financial support in 2018
Palestinian children with disabilities-We work in partnership with the UK based charity ABCD and we are sponsoring a Physiotherapist from their rehabilitation service to undertake further training.
The Red Box Project- This charity provides red boxes in local schools so girls can access essential sanitary provisions. We plan to fund a box .
Bromley & Croydon Women’s Aid- We have supported our local service for women who are victims of domestic violence for many years and will continue to provide practical support.
Our first fundraising event for 2018/19-
We were delighted to participate in the Shortlands station charity and for the first time tried a human fruit machine- lots of fun for us and our ‘punters’.
