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.

For further information  about our work or joining or for  tickets you can also CONTACT US

 

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.

 See Diary dates for calendar of social events.

The club also has  a walking group and 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).

If you are interested in becoming a member please contact us through the website so that we can arrange for you to come to a meeting. We would welcome you warmlyCONTACT US

Our meetings are not open to members of the general public but please make contact to arrange a visit or get more information.
