Soroptimist International - Kings Lynn

Soroptimist International of Kings Lynn is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to SI King’s Lynn

We are an active club with around 25 members.

Our meetings are held generally on the first and third Monday in the month as detailed on the programme page either at Marriott’s Warehouse, South Quay, King’s Lynn, Norfolk, PE30 5DT or via zoom. 

 

On Monday 26th April 2021, we held our 46th Annual General Meeting via an online Zoom meeting, with members providing updates on the past year’s work and our President Julie reflecting on the past year and welcoming us all to the new year. 

                   

About our club

The club raises funds from various events.  In the future, we will re-commence face to face activities, such as our well-established literary lunch, and International Women’s Day event Women Aloud type activities.  During 2020 – 2021 we focussed on zoom-based activity, such as our successful Christmas Quiz, and we now planning activities for 2021 – 2022.

In January 2021, the club donated £250 each to King’s Lynn Winter Night Shelter and West Norfolk Carers – more about this on our News page .  In the past fundraising has paid for three UNICEF Schools in a Box and the club has made donations to the King’s Lynn Food Bank, King’s Lynn Winter Night Shelter, and Pandora Project.

Our club continues to attract new members who bring with them fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

In addition to the monthly meetings we hold events during the year, some of which are included on the events pages as well as being shown on the programme page.  Non-members are welcome to attend, by arrangement.

Our club is part of the London Anglia Region https://sigbi.org/london-anglia/  The region’s clubs meet throughout the year via zoom until face to face meetings can resume at Newnham College, Cambridge.  These meetings are a great chance to get to know people from across the region, share interests and socialise.

2021 is an important year for Soroptimists!  We celebrate our centenary – find out more  by viewing our centenary video  and then why not meet your local club and see how you too can make a difference?
