A Message from the President


We would be delighted to welcome you to Soroptimist International, a global organisation for women. We work to improve the lives of women and girls through our Programme Action activities, by raising awareness, acting as advocates and taking action. We give service to projects both at home and abroad.

When you join this international organisation not only will you belong to our club but you will also be a member of the South Lancashire region and of Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI). SIGBI is one of the four Federations of Soroptimist International which has representation in 125 counties across the world.

As the new President of the Southport Club, I would like to welcome you and I hope you will enjoy a long and happy association with our club and other clubs within Soroptimist International. You may already have looked at our website (https://sigbi.org/) to gain some idea about the wonderful work we do. The SIGBI website also contains information about our Programme Action activities, SIGBI’s projects and appeals, working with friendship links, liaising with other organisations and fund raising. There are links to the Soroptimist International website (www.soroptimistinternational.org), where you can find a list of member countries, information about our long term project and links with the United Nations.

Once again I am really pleased to introduce you to Soroptimist International Southport. As a member of the club, I am sure you will enjoy fun and friendship and I look forward to seeing you at many of our events and activities.

In friendship

Janet Williams
President, SI Southport 2017-2018
