Club Projects


The Club supports projects

locally, regionally  and internationally.

Each year we have activities to raise funds for our projects and chosen charities.

Project SIerra  is the current International Project for all Soroptimist Clubs.

“Project SIerra: A Family And A Future aims to raise £1 million ($2million USD) to help disadvantaged women and children in Sierra Leone face their futures with confidence.

By strengthening families at risk of breakdown, helping young children living on the streets return home and empowering vulnerable young mothers, Project SIerra will enable more children to grow up in a caring family environment – giving them the opportunity to fulfil their potential.”
