Soroptimist International - Wakefield and District

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

Welcome to Soroptimist International of Wakefield and District

Soroptimist International is a global volunteer movement working together to transform the lives of women and girls with nearly 72000 members in 121 countries. The majority of members belong to their local club, where they can make friends with like-minded women and work on projects – local, national and international, always with an aim to educate, empower and enable women and girls.

The Wakefield club is quite small, with 21 members, but we have been involved in many projects over recent years and have formed partnerships with Mary’s Meals, The Prince’s Trust, Wakefield City of Sanctuary, Askham Grange Women’s Prison, Barnardo’s Young Carers. We have planted lots of trees, donated several Dementia robotic cats and have sponsored a Blue Plaque in Wakefield to recognise the work of Florence Beaumont in the campaign for women’s rights and suffrage.

We are a friendly club, enjoying various social activities and we meet at the Barnabas rooms at St. Paul’s church, every 2nd and 4th Thursday, 7.30pm, alternating meetings between business and speaker/social. You will be made very welcome if you would like to come along one evening (with no obligation to join!).

You can also find us on social media on FacebookInstagram @siwakefield1934 and Twitter @SI_Wakefield
