SI Perth meet at 6:30 pm in the Royal George Hotel, Perth, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month from September to June. One of these monthly meetings will be a speaker/programme action meeting and the other will have a more social aspect to it. ALL VISITORS WELCOME!!
Speaker meetings (on Zoom at the moment) are relevant to the type of projects that we do, and usually give an update on the good causes we work for, with a small amount of business and time to chat. The formalities of the evening are concluded by 9:00 pm.
Social events normally include an opening lunch, a Christmas meal and a summer outing, as well as monthly coffee mornings where members can enjoy a coffee, a scone and a good blether. Out-visits to our project partners also feature in our social calendar, always enjoyed by everyone who participates. See the new syllabus below for some of these out-visits.
We also organise a few fundraising events during the year and disburse the funds at our AGM in April to causes both locally and internationally. We have around 20 members at present and would be delighted to welcome more.
As women working globally to help other women and girls, you’ll find fun, friendship and a sense of pride that you are helping to make the world a better place for people who need our help.
Please check out our Programme Action (What we do) pages to find out more about our busy club, our activities and our contribution to our global society. The work we do falls under five headings – what we call the five P’s. These are:
- People Trying to end poverty and hunger, encourage good health, good education and gender equality
- Prosperity Looking at economic growth, renewables, innovation & infrastructure, sustainable communities
- Planet Pushing for clean water for all, good sanitation for all, climate action, responsible consumption
- Peace Advocating for an end to wars, lasting peace and justice for everyone, e.g. ending modern slavery, ending violence against women
- Partnerships Working in partnership with organisations with the same goals as ourselves
All our work is linked to the Sustainable Development Goals whether it’s local, national or international.
