Soroptimist International - Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead

Soroptimist International of Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to SI Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead

Our club was chartered in October 1961 and currently has over 20 members from a variety of professions. We give service, share friendship and also have fun. If you are a working woman who is interested in helping your community, challenging your thinking on current social issues and being part of an organisation which has over 100,000 members in more than 100 countries then maybe you would like to join our club. New members are always welcome.  Each month we meet on the third Wednesday at Fredricks Hotel, Shoppenhangers Lane, Maidenhead. Generally we have a meal  followed by a speaker and then discuss projects we are undertaking and any actions that are needed ending at around 10.00. We also have social and fund raising events.  Whilst the lockdown due to the Covid19 virus is in effect, the club is continuing to meet using the facilities of Zoom.

 The Club takes an active interest in local issues and has been instrumental in the provision of mental health facilities in Windsor, providing a Child Contact Centre facility for 15 years and the construction of a YMCA Hostel in Slough. It also assists DASH.  Additionally, members in each of the areas of Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead provide editors and readers for the three separate Talking Newspapers for the Blind in the area.  The club sponsors a young woman in the Philippines and is in the second year of sponsoring a young woman through a  Law Scholarship in Nepal.

The Club has friendship links with SI clubs in  Amsterdam Amstel, Banjul (The Gambia),Georgetown (Tasmania),  Grenada, Nigata (Japan),  Vilnius (Lithuania) and Katmandu.
