SI Nottingham has a long history of successful projects – here are some of the projects which the club has supported over the years.
Millennium Millions Appeal
S I Nottingham initiated and facilitated the Millennium Millions Appeal in 1998. With the help of other local women’s organisations, the appeal raised £925,000 towards the building of a bespoke Breast Institute for the women of Nottinghamshire. Soroptimist members raised over £34,000 within the club as well as taking an active part in the overall appeal. The total cost of the scheme was £5.2m. Members served on the steering committee, which became the MMA Committee, as well as on the board of trustees. Soroptimist International granted SI Nottingham a Best Practice Award at the SIGBI Conference in Glasgow in 2002 in acknowledgement of this achievement. HRH The Prince of Wales opened The Breast Institute in July 2004.
