President Val’s Welcome 2020/21


Why visit us?

If you would like to help girls and women become the best they can possibly be, then visit our friendly club. Pendleside has a seventy year history of commitment to helping women in our local community. Our project work is at the heart of what we do and, through the Soroptimist network, we can assist women in need abroad, as well as nearer home.

What do we do?

We raise awareness of need, we socialise and we fund- raise. Come along to one of our monthly meetings with our lively programme of inspiring speakers and activities. Recently, we heard about the trafficking of women and girls in Lancashire whom we decided to help by providing grab bags of toiletries and warm, casual clothing.

What are our key charities right now?

Our chosen charity for 2020/2021 is Empowering Girls in Nepal; this helps raise funds which provide safe houses and sewing workshops so that abused and trafficked girls can learn a skill to support their families. Nearer home, we will continue to support Pendle Dementia Alliance by our singing for memory project, Themes on Thursday.

Why not try one of our meetings

If you enjoy stimulating conversation and, in however small a way, would like to help the girls and women of tomorrow to realise their full potential then come along and visit us at SI Pendleside.

Rest assured, you will find a warm welcome at our friendly, supportive club.

Val Thomas
