Region Immediate Past President Denise and Club President Sheelagh

Denise Parker served as President of SI South Lancashire Region, 2022-2023. Her fellow members arranged the afternoon tea to celebrate her achievement. Officers from the Region’s Executive were joined by her family to voice their congratulations – and to thank her for a busy and memorable year.

Wendy with her farewell gifts

SI Widnes President Sheelagh Dayus then led everyone in offering best wishes to a special longstanding member.

Wendy Ross-Barker, a Widnes Soroptimist since 1999, is relocating to Scotland. President Sheelagh praised Wendy’s commitment to Soroptimism and, in particular, her promotion of Fairtrade. At quarterly Region meetings Wendy invariably set up her Fairtrade stall and, over the years, raised hundreds of pounds.

On behalf of the Region current President Pam Wright commended Denise and Wendy for their service, loyalty and friendship.
