President’s message


IMG_0802 [5292]

Welcome to our website. Having been nominated as a President in the past, I will have the honour to represent Soroptimist International at several Civic events in the community again, whilst leading our club in Newbury.

The President has the choice of the charity that the Club will support during her year.  I have chosen two main charities The West Berkshire Community Hospital Renal Unit, when this unit is complete it will greatly improve life for many people on dialysis within West Berkshire, and The Crohn’s and Colitis UK Charity who are again working to improve the lives of many. We also support many other local and national charities.

Our main annual fundraiser is the Pancake Races and Lunches event held on Shrove Tuesday in Newbury Market Place and St. Nicolas Church hall. Teams, many in fancy dress battle for the Pancake Champion of the Year, the Best Dressed Team and Best Pancake Tosser of the Year! Following the races delicious Pancake Lunches are served in St Nicolas’ Church Hall.

We are a small and friendly club with quite a big age range and extend a warm welcome to possible new members to our meetings which are on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at St George’s Church Annex, Wash Common, please click on “Contact Us” on the left of the screen.
