The Soroptimist Club in Stafford has been active for over 80 years.
We are a lively club with over 40 members – not only from Stafford, but also from Stone, Penkridge, Eccleshall and further afield too. We come from all walks of life, and many of our members have backgrounds in health, education and business.
We meet twice a month. On the first Tuesday of each month there is a speaker meeting which is usually held at Brocton Hall Golf Club, although in the winter months this takes place by Zoom. Topics range from the fun to the thought-provoking, and of course we focus on those matters that are very relevant to our central purpose, which is improving the lives of women and girls.
On the third Tuesday of each month we hold a meeting on Zoom which is focussed on business matters and our projects. We have several projects, including working on such things as
- violence against women, both local and worldwide,
- domestic abuse,
- women in prison,
- climate change and plastic pollution.

Apart from meetings of the Club there are social events and fundraising activities.
