Welcome to the website of Soroptimists Port Talbot!

 

Our club consists of a group of 25 friendly and lively women from all sectors of the community, bringing a wealth of knowledge and life experience to our activities We work together using our various skills and talents to make a difference to the lives of others.  We do this through awareness-raising, lobbying, practical help and fund-raising.

Formed in 1948 – we are celebrating our 70th Anniversary! – we meet twice a month at the Aberavon Beach Hotel; once for a club meeting and on the second occasion we get together more socially, either for a supper with a speaker, a fund raising event or just a convivial get-together to which friends and members from other local Clubs are also invited.

Beyond our own club, members value the national and global network of Soroptimist clubs giving opportunities to travel, meet like-minded women and share ideas across the UK and the world. We work hard to improve the lot of women and girls both locally and worldwide and we always aim to invigorate our efforts with fun, food and friendship!

Our interests range across:

  • Economic and Social Development
  • Education
  • Environment
