Belonging to a region as well as a club gives Soroptimists the opportunity to make friends with like-minded women from a wider area, and gives members the opportunity to share ideas and motivate each other to work even harder to help women and girls in our local communities, throughout our region, nationally and internationally.  

As a region we can also be more effective in helping others, with each club having its own individual themes and charities. However, we are mindful of working in unison with the UK Programme Action Committee (UKPAC) and with our Soroptimist International Great Britain & Ireland President’s Projects Appeal. 

We usually meet at the Link Hotel, Ashby Road, Loughborough LE11 4EX. Due to the current global pandemic, we are using a virtual platform to meet regionally three times per year.  The majority of our members are embracing technology and are meeting via Zoom for their monthly meetings. Hopefully, we can meet up again face to face soon. In the meantime, we are keeping in touch by emails, phone calls, letters, newsletters, text messages (WhatsApp) and of course Zoom meetings.
