President’s message for 2016/2017


                                   Judith Flower

 

Our President is Dr Judith Flower

 

“I spent my early years in Pontefract, West Yorkshire, before going to London University to study medicine at Kings College Medical School.  After graduation, I specialised in paediatrics.

On marriage, I moved to Bolton,and while raising my children, I worked part time in Community child health, and family planning. Later I was appointed Consultant Paediatrician in Community Child Healthcare for the Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Trust, with a special interest in children with disabilities, and child protection

I moved to Northwich in 2003 prior to retirement, to be closer to my daughter, son and four grandchildren.  In 2010 I became a Soroptimist. My other activities include playing golf, dog walking, singing and acting as a steward at Davenham Methodist Church.

During my Presidential year, I intend to promote the aims of Soroptimism, and to continue to raise money for both local charities and Soroptimist projects overseas. My chosen charity is the Joshua Tree, a local charity which aims to support families who have a child with cancer, and help them cope with this life changing experience by providing accommodation in peaceful surroundings.”
