I was delighted to celebrate the international dimension of Soroptimism with two South Lancashire clubs.
Firstly, I joined the members of my club (SI Liverpool) to mark International Human Rights Day. It was a bit of a shock to receive a beautiful card and gifts to mark my Presidency from members. Wow!
After dinner candles were lit for Soroptimist International, Federations and countries. I was privileged to light one for our own South Lancashire Region.
Thank you, sisters, for inviting me, for the lovely gifts – and also for raising money for my daughter’s charity (Breathe Easy Foundation).
Secondly, Bootle Soroptimists invited me to a virtual evening to mark International Human Rights Day. Candles were lit; then we enjoyed a quiz, poems and anecdotes from members and guests – plus some music. I really must brush up my quizzing skills!
It was a tremendous opportunity to connect through through the internet get to know members from another club. Thank you President Sriya and Bootle Soroptimists for an evening that highlighted our precious international organisation.
