SI Swindon & District
Soroptimist International of Swindon & District was Chartered in October 1960. In recent years Swindon Club has faced many problems resulting from a fall in membership but we continue to undertake many programme action projects. Meeting twice a month on Wednesday evenings, Swindon Soroptimists get to know each other well and over time strong friendships are formed. Varied speakers, good food, interesting discussions and the ability to make a difference for women and girls in the world gives members another dimension in their lives.
We are very proud of our support for the Nelson’s Trust Women’s Centre and continue to support the local Refuge. We also give books annually to Drove Primary School and recently ended 10 years of support for the Big Breakfast Plus club for the homeless in Swindon. Current fundraising efforts are for the local children’s hospice and the Swindon Women’s Aid. In 2017 we raised £1400 for Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
In 2019 we hosted the regional Railing Against Abuse event on 23 November in support of the UN Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. We have received support from the Deputy Lieutenant of Wiltshire, the local MP, the Police and Crime Commissioner, the Chief Constable and the Mayor.
