About our Club

We make a difference – join us!

Collecting on the Grove for Breast Cancer Research

Club meetings are normally on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, with the exception of August and December. They are held at the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley, at 7:30pm. This year’s diary of events is shown below.
The first Thursday is usually a club meeting and on the second Thursday we welcome a guest speaker.
After the meeting tea and coffee is served giving us time to catch-up and socialise.

In addition to regular meetings a number of social events are organised throughout the year and these will be listed in the diary of events.

Get in touch with us via the “Contact us” page or email us directly at soroptimistilkley@gmail.com
