About our Club
Welcome to SI Surrey Hills
SI Surrey Hills …..
…. launched in January 2017. The Club was born from SI Guildford & District and is based in Godalming with members from all parts of Surrey Hills – Cranleigh, Hindhead, Farnham etc. It meets on the first and third Mondays of the month (bank holidays permitting) in the hall of Godalming Baptist Church and occasionally and informally on the third Friday of the month at the Inn on the Lake. This means we are right in the heart of Godalming. Details of the meetings are given in the following pages.
This year members are continuing to support a number of charities including the childrens’ ward at the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford; Smalls for All; and the Surrey Women’s refuges. Please have a look at our news page for more information on these projects.
We will be working for the third year in conjunction with SI Woking and SI Weybridge, to run a competition in schools promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activities for girls. This accords with one of the Soroptimist values of realising womens’ potential and one of the Soroptimist goals of increasing access to education and leadership for women and girls.
We would also like to think that the Club is continuing to seek new challenges and new projects. One example is the new project Smalls for All, collecting underwear to enable girls in Africa to attend school. We have lots of ideas and would love some new members to help us achieve our goals!
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.
