Soroptimist International - Richmond and Dales

Soroptimist International of Richmond and Dales is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to SI Richmond and Dales

We are members of a lively and friendly club which is part of a global organisation committed to a world where women and girls together can achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong and peaceful communities worldwide.

Faye Doorbar and Jane Priestley will be joint presidents of SI Richmond and Dales for the year 2020 – 2021. Faye has been treasurer and Jane, social convenor for several years at our club prior to becoming presidents.   Our theme “promoting women’s equality and empowerment in all communities “, encompasses the aims of our chosen charities. ‘Just the Job’ is based in Richmond and it aims to empower individuals with varying abilities through work in the community. The Yorkshire to Gambia Educational Trust promotes women’s literacy and encourages girls to remain at school and thus develop opportunities for employment and further education.

Our club meets on the third Thursday of the month at Richmond Cricket Club. The start to this year has been a very unusual one for all of us with actual meetings having to be replaced with virtual meetings and our first ever online AGM. We are a very friendly club who welcome new members  and despite the current circumstances would like to hear from anyone who would like to know more about us, so please get in touch and come and join us.
