Soroptimist Suffragette Cheerstation at the London Landmarks Half Marathon

The London Landmarks Half Marathon on March 25th raised more than £1.5 million pounds for the children’s charity Tommy’s. Because this year is the 100th anniversary of female suffrage in the UK, this new London event included a suffragist cheer station manned by Soroptimists in suffragette costumes and with sashes. In the pic are Jen Simpson, Helen Byrne and Barbara Diamant SI London Chilterns Region with Brenda Simpson Associate Member (and Jen’s Mum). The event was a great success and the 4 Soroptimists had a brilliant day in London raising the profile of Soroptimists – well done ladies!
