Soroptimist International - Salisbury

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

Welcome to SI Salisbury

Our first AGM held ‘in person’ was held on Monday 25th April 2022 at the White Hart Hotel in Salisbury. For the past two years the AGMs had to be Zoom meetings, but this year we were able to hold a hybrid meeting with Zoom for those who couldn’t attend in person and to link with a project we support in Tanzania run by Edukaid. We welcomed two new members, a prospective member and a guest speaker from the Salisbury Women’s Refuge, our other main charity. For more information please see our Club News section.

In March we celebrated International Women’s Day with a meal at the Red Lion. It was in fact our postponed Christmas meal, but everyone agreed it was good to have something to celebrate in March as December is often very busy!

What do we do?

Apart from raising funds to support our two main charities we also have other projects in hand; Her Salisbury Story – a research project to write women back into history, Safer Salisbury – a collaborative project with other organisations in our city to improve safety for all, STEM – to promote science and technology as career choices for girls, Bra collection – sending gently used bras to Africa, Orange the World – raising awareness of domestic violence.

For a quick look at our activities throughout the year, please watch this video.
