71st Annual Charter Lunch
On Saturday 16th March, President Anne welcomed members, family, friends and guests to the 71st Annual Charter Lunch.
We were joined by Region President Pam, Guest speaker Tony Paxton Sqdn.Ldr.Ret, his wife Helena, and Presidents and members from around the Region, also with us were members of SI Widnes (South Lancs Region).
In her toast to Soroptimist International, Region President Pam paid tribute to all the amazing women in our club who went before us, she gave generous praise to the project work we do now and then highlighted the contribution Soroptimists make at the UN centres around the world.
Guest speaker Tony Paxton gave an interesting and amusing account of his career as fast jet pilot in the RAF and then as a commercial pilot. He assured us that women were well represented in the profession and that here is no gender pay gap.
As always it was a happy occasion for the club as we spent time together with members and friends.
