Welcome to SI Lancaster
Soroptimist International of Lancaster is one of a number of clubs in the North West Region. Our members come from all walks of life. The club is a very active one, involved in an extensive range of interesting projects locally and internationally.
Our most popular committee is Programme Action which is engaged in a number of projects on a long term basis, e.g. providing support Life Education Centres for Lancashire, WaterAid, and creating and supplying story sacks to local primary schools. Read more about the work we are doing Projects We campaign on issues relating particularly to women and girls.
We meet twice a month at 7 pm, on the second and fourth Thursdays in The Holiday Inn in Lancaster. In addition to our business meetings, we invite outside speakers covering a diverse range of topics and enjoy Social Events.
We also celebrate and support International Days, e.g. World Food Day, International Women’s Day and International Day of Peace. Food tends to loom large in many of these events!
President for 2020-2021
Lancaster Soroptimist would like to introduce you to the 2020-2021 President.
Hilary has been a Soroptimist for over 30 years and held various club offices over that time.
However due to work and family commitments, she chose not to be considered for the role of President until she had finished work. At which time she felt she would have more time to give to the position.
After more than 36 years working within the NHS Hilary left work in 2018 and moved to the North West where she transferred to become a member of SI Lancaster.
Hilary has found SI Lancaster to be a thriving, dynamic club who made her and all the many other recent new members most welcome.
Our programme of speakers and planned events for the coming year has need some alterations due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. However, with our new president, Hilary we are confident that SI Lancaster will adapt this as required and continue to make a significant difference both locally and internationally.
Lancaster SI members wish Hilary the best for what is looking like a very challenging year.
Hilary, Club President for 2020-2021
