Grange SI is a thriving club of just under 40 members. Many have been members for a long time showing their commitment to and support for Soroptimism, but recently the club has seen an exciting influx of new members. This is possibly because of the interesting and varied activities and projects that the club is involved in.
The club meets at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday in the month in Cartmel Village Hall. These meetings are for the running of the club, where whole club activities and projects are planned. Additionally members meet in smaller Programme Action Groups; these are focused on one area of Soroptimism and enable more focused and in depth projects to be realised. You can find out more about this on the Club News section and under specific headings. The different groups are Health and Food security, Environment and Economic Empowerment , Violence and Conflict Resolution the latter shortened to EEVCR for obvious reasons.
There is also a good fun packed programme of social events when husbands, partners and friends sometimes join us; these are occasions when the message of Soroptimism to improve the lives of women and girls is realised in a more light hearted way.
Club meetings at Cartmel Village Hall are currently cancelled due to Covid but project work and some socially distanced activities continue. See Diary dates for calendar of social events.
The club also has two Reading Groups, members read and meet to review an eclectic range of good literature, at the same time finding out more about each other. Use the site to find out more about these.
