Soroptimist International - Surrey Hills

Soroptimist International of Surrey Hills is part of a worldwide organisation of women, which is linked to the United Nations.

Welcome to SI Surrey Hills

The Coronavirus outbreak has impacted us all. But that is not stopping the members of SI Surrey Hills continuing to support women and girls locally and abroad. Although we aren’t able to meet as usual, we are holding our regular meetings virtually, via Zoom. Please do contact us if you would like to join in.

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.
