Journalism Award


Commemorating Barbara’s 60 years as a Soroptimist

Barbara Bailey was a much loved member of our club who celebrated more than 60 years as a Soroptimist. Barbara left a legacy to the club, and we decided to create a Journalism Award for a student from Nottingham Trent University who produced the best programme on women’s issues.

The winner was Charlotte Bailey (no relation to Barbara), whose project ‘No Pain, no Gain’ concentrated on the problems of violence and perception experienced by the street workers of Nottingham.

President Audrey presented the award to Charlotte when she returned to Nottingham for her graduation. Also in the picture is Dr Emma Hemmingway of Nottingham Trent University.
