Welcome message from Our President

 

Theme for the year – Soroptimists see the opportunity in every difficulty.

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty” a quote from Winston Churchill.

As Soroptimists we work together to improve the lives of women and girls around the world. Most of this work is done by problem solving and these can have their difficulties however we strive to overcome them and find the positive actions to make a real difference.

It is my privilege to be President of this region and hope to visit and support as many clubs as possible during my year. Having acted as Programme Action officer for the region for some years I am particularly looking forward to seeing clubs in action and finding these opportunities.

I have been a member of SI Stratford upon Avon since 2007 and continue to work as a nurse in the town.

As we head towards the 100th anniversary of the organisation in 2021 I hope we continue to grow and inspire others to join us.
