A Message from President Marjorie

Welcome to the website for Soroptimist International of Morecambe and Heysham.

SI Morecambe and Heysham is a friendly club with members from a variety of backgrounds offering their skills and knowledge to the club.  We are always pleased to welcome new members to help us in promoting the objects and purposes of Soroptimism.  We offer the opportunity to serve the local, national and global community to enhance the status of women and girls worldwide.  We do this through our volunteering, fundraising and promotion.

We are a friendly group with members coming from a wide variety of professions and businesses and offering their diversity of experience, knowledge and skills to the club.  We are always pleased to welcome new members who wish to join us in promoting our vision of a world where women have equal status and rights.

We are very aware of the demands upon women’s time and the pressures of home and work.  We understand the time challenges faced by many women and we welcome any level of participation from our members.

Each year the President selects a charity to benefit from the Club’s fundraising; this year I have chosen Barnardo’s Young Carers project in Morecambe, with the specific aim of providing funding for the young people to undertake recognised skills training.

Finally, an essential part of all Soroptimist activities is fun, so why not come and join in the fun of being a Soroptimist, and get to know a really great bunch of women.

Marjorie Whitehead

President 2012 to 2013
