We are very sad to announce the death of our dear friend Barbara Ward, a Soroptimist for over 40 years. Barbara was a member and previous President of Soroptimist International Accrington until the club’s closure when she joined SI Rossendale.
A Christmas Message from our Club President, Alison Driver.
Have you ever wondered how SI Rossendale Supports Survivors Of Domestic Violence? 25th November is the International Day Of Elimination Of Violence Against Women. As part of our ongoing campaign to support women escaping domestic violence, SI Rossendale members have recently donated gifts to our local womens refuge. Just in time for Christmas.
Earlier in November, SI Rossendale members enjoyed a club walk through the recently restored railway tunnels from Waterfoot to Stacksteads.
In 2019, our Soroptimists sister and member of SI Rossendale, Jean Hamer, sadly passed away. Here are a few words about her life, written by her friend and fellow SI Rossendale member, Mary Ashman.
You might think that the recent Coronavirus crisis would have stopped the Soroptimists from doing what we do, but not here at SI Rossendale. In fact, we’re still fundraising despite lockdown!
