Region Benevolent Fund Annual Report September 2023
This is my first report to the AGM as the Region’s Benevolent Fund Trustee.
Due to the current increase in the cost of living the Fund is on hand to support our Soroptimist friends. Consequently Trustees are appealing for help from individuals and Clubs in the form of donations or fund raising activities as without this the fund may find it more difficult to carry on its very important work.
Trustees are encouraging Soroptimists to be aware if any of their Club members are experiencing financial difficulties that the Fund could support them with and make contact to find out how they may be helped.
I would therefore be pleased to talk to Clubs about the work of the Fund and also have a powerpoint presentation which may be useful – the Region’s secretary has my contact details.
I am also readily available to talk to any member who feels that the Fund may be able to help them.
I can assure you that all will be in the strictest confidence.
Thank you all for your support.
Benevolent Fund Trustee
