Message from President Maureen

It is my pleasure as President of SI Pendleside to welcome you to our website.

I am proud to lead our club throughout its 70th year of service. Our work can be local, national and international where we aim to improve the lives of girls and women; to empower them with skills to achieve their dreams. This can be both a rewarding and satisfying experience.

My Soroptimist involvement spans over thirty-five years and I have seen many changes both at club level and the work that we do as Soroptimists. Our mission is even more important today as we live in such a diverse and multi-cultural society.

MIND is my chosen charity for the coming year and we are already well on the way to a healthy balance. It is an organisation that is close to my heart and I hope we can go some way to helping someone who is suffering with mental health issues.

I hope you enjoy perusing our website and would encourage any like minded lady to come along to a meeting and see what we do. I can guarantee a warm, friendly welcome and you too could make a difference.

Our meetings are held at :-

The Higher Trapp Hotel, Simonstone, BB12 7QW
on the third Monday of each month commencing  at 7.00pm.
(However, during the months of November until March, the meeting commencement time changes to 1.30pm).
