The Cirencester and District Club began in 1948 and we are now a thriving group of women of varying ages.  We are actively seeking new members to join us.  We need the enthusiasm and dynamism of younger women as well as the experience and wisdom of those who are older.  If transforming the lives of women and girls is important to you Contact us today to find out more and perhaps arrange an informal chat or attend a meeting.

President 2021 - 2022

Jill Lang

Hello, I am Jill Lang, the Cirencester and District President for 2022 – 2023. I am also the current SIGBI Regional Programme Action Officer for the South West and Channel Islands.

My local charity is GARAS – Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers whose work is ever increasing and more necessary.

My International charity of the year is the British Red Cross which is working at home and all over the world where people are in crisis from wars and disasters.

Highlighting those in need, especially women and girls, enables us to support a range of local, national, international charities and organisations. Our fundraising is part of how we can support them.

Soroptimists are very fond of alliteration from ‘Educate, Empower and Enable’ to ‘Friendship, Food and Fun’. We aim to enjoy ourselves as well as helping others.
