SI Surrey Hills we’re busy working on our projects – Smalls for All (collecting bras and new knickers), collecting books for our bookstall supporting the Royal Surrey County Hospital, filling handbags as gifts for Surrey Women’s refuges, supplying toiletry bags for parents whose children are admitted to the childrens’ ward at the Royal Surrey and working with Nepali women in Aldershot. We run a STEM competition to encourage girls in Years 8 and 9 to consider STEM careers.
But we want to do more! And that’s where you come in…..
What do you get out of it?? A sense of helping others; working on projects which directly help women and girls both locally and throughout the world; talks which educate you on issues; Regional meetings where you meet other like-minded women and our annual Conference, where over 1,000 women gather to debate and learn.
If you would like to find out more about us in particular and Soroptimism in general, we would be delighted to see you at one of our meetings. Please contact us through this website and our Membership Co-ordinator will be in touch.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are unable to hold our conference as usual this year. Instead, the SIGBI Belfast Virtual Conference will be broadcast on the afternoons of Friday 30th October and Saturday 31st October.
The Conference is available to members and guests throughout the world and is a fantastic opportunity to hear speakers and learn more about the work of Soroptimism across the globe.
The theme of this year’s conference is “We stand up for Women” and the Conference committee have chosen inspirational speakers to bring this theme to life. The conference will have a mix of live and pre-recorded sessions that will be experienced online. It will be vibrant, dynamic and interactive and still bring a flavour of Belfast to it through poetry, dancing and music.
Full details of the Conference programme, fees and how to register are on the SIGBI Belfast 2020 Conference Website. Registration closes on 16th October 2020.
