SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL – STOCKTON-ON-TEES, last year celebrated 60 years since the foundation of the Club in 1957.
Throughout those 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 new 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
