A NEW PROJECT FOR SOROPTIMISTS Every three years Soroptimists in our Federation, which includes 28 countries throughout the world, choose a project that we will all support through fundraising. Our latest project is to help women and girls in Kenya. The project was proposed by SI Meru, in Kenya. It is known as the Meru Women’s Garden Project. SI Derby set a target for our club to raise £1200 over the three years. Since March 2016 we have raised £1246 for Meru. Our latest fundraiser was a coffee morning and scarf swap which raised £170. We have now exceeded our club target for this project. Find out more about Meru Women’s Garden Project (MWGP).
As from January 2016, S I Derby has been meeting at The King’s Highway, Kingsway Derby. DE22 3NH. Some of us meet in the pub at 5.45-6.00 for a meal before the meeting, which starts at 7.00 and is held in the hotel behind the pub – see picture below.
