Soroptimist InternationaI – Your local club in Chester
Join the Chester club to become a member of a global movement of women, coming up to its 100-year anniversary in 2021.
Soroptimist International (SI) is a women’s voluntary organisation who focus on project work, transforming the lives of women and girls, locally, nationally and internationally. Members work together to empower women and girls, using our collective resources and voices to enable others to achieve their potential.
The SI club in Chester meet at 7.30pm on the second Monday of each month at the Mollington Banastre Hotel, Parkgate Road, CH1 6NN to plan, develop and review current projects.
Get in touch here for a 3-month free trial. A current member will contact you to arrange a visit to one of our meetings and you can meet the other members and hear about SI and our projects.
Members of SI enjoy the companionship and camaraderie of working with other women to campaign, raise awareness, advocate and fundraise about a number of issues and charities including:
- Modern Day Slavery – members present to local organisations (e.g. WI, Storyhouse Women, International Women’s Day, Chester university) to raise awareness of the signs of MDS
- Gender-based violence – we have link membership and support Chester Women’s Aid and CSASS (Chester Sexual Abuse Support Service)
- Working with other organisations at the United Nations Commission for the Status of Women
- For other projects see the sidebar / club menu
We also hold a number of social events throughout the year and have the opportunity to meet members from other clubs though joint project work, the annual members’ conference or at international conferences and overseas projects.
Current membership fees are £11/month.
