SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL – STOCKTON-ON-TEES, the Club was founded in 1957 and celebrated its 60th year in 2017.
Throughout 60+ years the Club has given service and support to many local charities, donated funds to local, national and international organisations and charities and collected foodstuffs, clothing, linen and toiletries for many needy causes locally.
Members have worked tirelessly and quietly to support women and girls in attempting to make their world a better place in which to live.
All of this was celebrated with the presentation to the Club of the Mayor of Stockton’s Civic Award for Community Service 2018 at a ceremony in April.
As the President, I am proud of the legacy from the last 60 years and will endeavour to carry on leading the Club to maintain standards of service which have been set by my predecessors.
Margaret Wall, President
