How’s your day been?

Have you washed in hot running water?

Have you eaten breakfast, with your educated daughter.

Did you vote in the last election without fear?

Simple things, but not so common everywhere.

We work with the UN, improving the status of women.

Soroptimists for girls and women all over the world; changing lives and in the UK too we’re helping someone

every day.

How’s your day been?

 

We do like to be beside the seaside and we do like to be members of SI Morecambe and Heysham.

Are you a woman who wants to make a difference?

Do you care about issues which affect women and girls?

We hold regular business and social meetings and events throughout the year and are actively involved in local matters.  We have campaigned about local “grot spots”, planted bulbs and trees for the community; worked with other agencies such as Marine Conservation on beach cleaning surveys and with the staff of Morecambe Library to provide a defibrillator outside their building; and we are involved in many other serious and not-so-serious issues – have a look at our Programme Action posts to see the wide variety of projects in which we have taken part.

At the inaugural charter dinner of SI Morecambe and Heysham, Dr W F Lyle said “I know of no club or federation of clubs through which women are shouldering their new responsibilities with a finer idealism, a more selfless enthusiasm and a more valuable application in a troubled world than the Soroptimist movement.  Its members are women who believe in service for others.”

This still holds true today and we are proud to have celebrated our 80th charter anniversary in 2019.

We have a reputation for being a friendly and welcoming club and if you are interested in finding out more about us please have a look at the rest of the website and you can contact us by completing our contact form.
