WINNER!! Soroptimist Club Wins St Albans Mayors Pride Award in the Voluntary Sector

Soroptimist International of London Chilterns is proud to announce that the St Albans and District Soroptimist Club won the St Albans Mayor’s Pride Award 2019 in the Voluntary Sector category.

The first picture is of the three finalists (Soroptimist Jane Slatter is on the right), with the Mayor, Councillor Rosemary Farmer at the front. The other finalists in the Voluntary Sector were the St Albans Museum Volunteers and the SAlbans Helping the Homeless Group. We could hardly believe it when we won because the other finalists would have been truly worthy winners. 

Barbara Saunders Secretary, Jane Slatter Communications Officer and Kat Clark President-Elect are pictured here at the beginning of the event at St Michael’s Manor, before the awards were announced. They all agreed it was a wonderful evening and brilliant to be recognised for the work Club Members have been doing in St Albans and District since 1957.  There is also a picture of the Award Certificate, engraved glass plaque and programme.

 

The winners of all the different categories are on the St Albans Council Website: www.stalbans.gov.uk/community-and-living/getinvolved/MayorsPrideAwards/
