At SI Surrey Hills we’re busy working on our projects – collecting bras and new knickers for Smalls for All, writing letters to cancer sufferers in hospital, filling handbags as gifts for Surrey Women’s refuges, making little fabric hearts to support Covid patients and their families and knitting blankets for Bliss. We also lobby government on matters of interest to women and girls, such as the inclusion of the offence of non-fatal strangulation in the recent Domestic Violence Act 2021.
These are just a few of our current projects. And we want to do more! 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.
SI Surrey Hills plants 527 trees in Kolkata
Well, we didn’t quite pick up the spades ourselves but to celebrate the centenary of Soroptimist International this year, we have funded 527 mangrove saplings to be planted as part of a project supported by SI South Kolkata in India to develop “the Community Forest”. See our report under “Club news” for details.
