Our Club President, Denise Powell, took the opportunity whilst on holiday in Australia (Ed: lucky Denise!) to make contact with our sisters from Soroptimist International Gold Coast. Denise reports back here:
“Although they didn’t have a meeting during my time there, 3 of the Members (President Alison Robinson, Dorothea Banner and Elwyn Syers) took time out of their summer break to meet with me (over coffee and cake!). I gave them a gift of a book about St Albans, and they gave me a Club pennant to bring home and share with our Club.
It was fascinating to hear about some of the programmes that their Club is undertaking, particularly in relation to the indigenous population. They have some neat little activities too, including keeping a ‘penny’ box into which their Members pop the tiniest of the coins at each meeting…..it apparently all mounts up….
