Three Members of SI St Albans and District were excited to be able to attend Soroptimist International Great Britain and Ireland’s Conference in Malta this year – Denise Powell, Hilary Ratcliffe and Jane “Pinky” Slatter. The Conference was truly inspirational with fantastic speakers including Dr Helen Sharman OBE – Britains First Astronaut – there is more detail on the Conference website www.sigbi.org/malta2016

On the Friday morning of the Conference the 1000 delegates were asked to wear as much pink as possible and make a “pink splash” by the pool of the Conference hotel for Breast Cancer awareness and fundraising. The event was perfect for our Member “Pinky” who is pictured here with her sign “Pink isn’t just a colour, it’s an attitude”
