Presidents’ message


President: Amanda Barnes-Andrews


Welcome to the Southampton Club of Soroptimist International.  I am delighted to be President of the club until April 2018.  I have been a Soroptimist for seven years. I joined because I was impressed by the commitment of members to raise the profile of women and girls, and to generate funds for charities which help females, locally, nationally and internationally. This year we shall be working to highlight the issues of homeless women in Southampton and to this end we shall be supporting the Southampton based charity Two Saints. We have some fundraising events planned and we’ll be making donations of items for women at the Two Saints hostel, Patrick House.

We also have a programme of interesting and stimulating speakers through the year, who no doubt will give us food for thought and improve our understanding on a variety of issues.
