Long service awards


2018

Vivian Khan was awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership at our International Evening.

 

Viv was, as she said herself, “absolutely stunned” when it was announced. It had been a very well-kept secret

Viv is a superb Soroptimist, always showing great enthusiasm and dedication to the work of the club and the whole Soroptimist movement.

She became a member in 1982 and served as President 1992 –1993. She has held various other posts, particularly in Programme Action where she has brought so many causes to club over many years and her commitment and motivation are an inspiration to all. Viv enjoys her work and always displays a great sense of humour.

Viv has always taken a great interest in Soroptimist regional matters and was Midland Chase Regional President in 2003 – 2004 and has also served for 4 years as Regional Councillor.
