Message from Outgoing President Sue

It has been an honour and a privilege to be your Regional President, I have enjoyed every minute of it, the year has certainly flown by!

I enjoyed all of your Charter events but only managed to get to a few Club events and meetings, so, as I look forward to my year as Immediate Past President, I would like to visit as many Clubs as possible, gathering information and spreading ideas for Phase 3 of our Growth Plan. The more members we have, the more we can achieve!

As I came out of office, Federation asked for my ‘proudest achievement’, I chose being included in ‘100 Women 100 Stories’ to showcase Soroptimism. I have now been asked to be a judge for the ‘She Inspires Awards’ by the founder Gulnaz Brennan and I look forward to working with Naz, watching and learning how to raise our profile in the North West.

Let’s celebrate our achievements and make everybody aware of what an awesome group of women we are!!

Message from Sue’s ‘Soroptimister’ Jeff!
Sadly, my year accompanying the Regional President to Club events is over.
I’ve learned so many things in that time and I was so impressed at every club I’ve attended by the dedication of members to the many projects and causes which they support. I know that the efforts of every member can make a real difference to the lives of young girls and women around the world.
Finally, thank you to all the clubs in the region for inviting me to their events – I have been wonderfully received by all and talked to so many interesting people – it has been a real pleasure to attend.
