SI Surrey Hills is your local branch of Soroptimist International. We are a busy club, working on our projects to educate, empower and enable women and girls, both here and across the world. We may be collecting bras and new knickers for Smalls for All, who pass them on to women and girls in need, supporting Surrey County Council’s new initiative with Binti to promote “period dignity” in Surrey or lobbying government on new legislation of concern to women and girls. Or we may be knitting blankets for Bliss to support premature and sick babies, writing letters to cancers sufferers with From Me To You, or supporting Your Sanctuary, Surrey’s local women’s refuge, with necessities and gifts.
These are just a few of our current projects. But 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, regional meetings and our annual Conference, where over 1,000 women gather to debate and learn. Soroptimist International gets the benefit of your skills and enthusiasm. And women and girls across the world get the support and recognition they deserve.
If you would like to find out more about Soroptimism in general and SI Surrey Hills in particular, 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.
We look forward to seeing you!
16 Days of Activism against gender-based violence: Orange the World
This year SI Great Britain and Ireland (SIGBI) will again be supporting the UN’s 16 Days of Activism, “Orange the World”, an international campaign for the elimination of violence against women and girls. The campaign begins on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Here at SI Surrey Hills we will be working to raise awareness of gender-based violence in our local communities with the help of local businesses, by turning Godalming orange! Look out for our social media posts and other activities or, better still, come and join us and be part of our mission to eliminate gender-based violence, wherever it happens.
If you would like to know more about our work, please see our Forthcoming meetings page or contact us.
