Welcome and Congratulations

President Margaret Davidson has welcomed a new Soroptimist to the Crosby club.

Abby Younis is a financial crime consultant by profession, and a supporter of women’s issues by inclination. She recently came to a Crosby club meeting as a guest speaker. Following that, Abby decided to become a Soroptimist.

Abby founded the ‘Women Conquering Cancer’ fundraising campaign. This aims to raise funds for a Mona Lisa laser for the Women’s Hospital, Liverpool. The equipment will enable life-changing treatment for women suffering from uro-genital disorders following natural or surgical menopause.

This very new Soroptimist has already been active. At the 2022 conference, organised by SI South Lancashire Region, Abby stepped in when a speaker had to pull out of the programme.

President Margaret with Jill Boggan

President Margaret also had the pleasure of congratulating Jill Boggan on her momentous drive to Ukraine. Jill and her co-driver were the ‘Girl Power’ team, setting an example that several other women are due to follow.
