It is presented annually by SI South Lancashire Region, and is based on clubs’ reports of their service activities.

The focus of the award was SI Crosby’s 5-year Lunt Meadows project. Education, biodiversity and archaeology all feature.

Sriya Kulupana, Programme Action Officer, judged submissions from all the clubs in the region.

In her estimation, SI Crosby’s partnership with the Wildlife Trust (Lancashire, Manchester & North Merseyside) is well structured, targeted and planned. It has ongoing benefits for the community, the environment – and club members themselves.

Chris Smith, President of SI Crosby, was delighted to receive the trophy. In particular President Chris paid tribute to the club’s Programme Action Officer, Terry Francis, who has co-ordinated the project from the beginning.

The award was a highlight of SI South Lancashire Region’s celebration lunch welcoming Soroptimists who have joined in the past two years.
