For the second year the club held a duck Race on the river Eaa in the pretty village of Cartmel. It was a beautiful day and much interest was created. We were delighted to raise almost £350. Please see our Programme Action page for more photographs

On a windy Sunday in September a group of us had an excellent afternoon improving our driving skills at Cark airfield. We had the added excitement of the parachute planes flying very low right over our heads! We started with a quiz – non competitive of course! – and finished up driving round a course to improve our skills. We all passed! and learned a lot. It was a great afternoon. Thank you IAM
What a great day it was, lots of Soroptimist friends joined with us to look at the impact of World War 1 on women
Members of SI Barrow, Grange over sands and Windermere marked International Women’s Day with an event in Barrow Market Hall. Other groups involved were the Barrow Women’s Centre, Girl Guides and the Multicultural Forum. The event was attended by MP John Woodcock and MEP candidates Theresa Griffin and Julie Ward. Members talked to the public re International Women’s Day, Soroptimism and our projects including the Staying Safe project. MP John Woodcock and local schools were particularly interested in the Staying Safe project initiated by SI Grange. We also walked around Barrow with banners highlighting the day and talking to shoppers.. The day was rounded up with an excellent meal reflecting world wide cuisine provided by the multicultural forum members.
