Inter-Club Friendship Supper

Thursday 7th March 2019, 19:00 for 19:30
Celebrating Women’s Achievements
It is with great pleasure that Croydon Soroptimists invite you and your guests to our Annual Inter-Club Friendship Supper.
We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker is Melanie Gibson-Barton, who will regale us with details of “The Life and Times of Edith Cavell” – British heroine and nurse, executed in 1915 for helping allied soldiers escape during the First World War. As a registered speaker with several Federations of Women’s Institutes and the Kent History Federation, Melanie has considerable experience.
Melanie has regularly visited Brussels to research the hospitals and homes where Edith would have worked as well as the place of her execution, which she found to be a humbling experience. Supported by photographs and artefacts of her life, this talk tells Edith’s story.
