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. At the moment, all meetings are taking place via zoom in line with guidance around COVID19.  

 

On Monday 20th April 2020, we held our 45th Annual General Meeting via an online Zoom meeting, with members providing updates on the past year’s work and our new President Julie welcoming us all to the new year – and what a year it has been for everyone! 

                   

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 have focussed on zoom-based activity, such as our successful Christmas Quiz, and we now planning activities for Easter 2021.

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.
