St Albans Soroptimists join Lewisham and SE London 50 Year Celebration

Soroptimist International Le38-Lewisham Lunch Edit Webwisham and South East London celebrated the Club’s 50th Anniversary with a lunch at the historic Clarendon Hotel in Blackheath. Bea Lawes (pictured front row left) welcomed everyone and after a delightful meal, Federation President Margaret Emsley proposed a toast to the Lewisham Club, reflecting on their history, their noted member, Hilary Page, (who sadly was unwell and could not attend) and their recent project work (the Club may be small but really punches above it’s weight with great projects to improve the lives of women and girls). Regional President Pam (pictured centre back row) responded on behalf of the club and congratulated them on their anniversary and on a great event.

Our club was represented by President Denise Powell, pictured here back row 3rd from right with some of the Lewisham ladies and Regional President Pam. Denise’s daughter Becca is a recent addition to the Lewisham Club so Denise was delighted to attend and support her daughter’s Soroptimist Club.
