90th Anniversary Celebrations
Our club celebrated its 90th anniversary in May 2017 with a whole weekend of events.
The programme consisted of an Evening Reception in #63, a Guided Walk led by a Blue Badge guide, a Gala Diner in the Chapter House of the Museum of the Order of St John.
We are grateful to the nearly 100 guests who attended, many joining us from sister clubs in Turkey, the Netherlands, Belgium and Norway.
We were also very honoured to welcome the SI President Yvonne Simpson as our guest. Her article about the event can be found at https://www.soroptimistinternational.org/si-presidents-post-celebrating-si-central-south-west-london/
The proceeds from the raffle (first price an expensive handbag kindly donated by Alexa Chung) came to £1000 and were donated to WISH, our club president’s chosen charity. WISH is the only national, user-led charity working with women with mental health needs in prison, hospital and the community. Find out more about WISH at https://www.womenatwish.org.uk/.
