Welcome to Soroptimist International of Wakefield
A warm welcome to Soroptimist International of Wakefield – a dynamic women’s organisation
I’m Linda Phillips and it is my privilege to have been invited to be the club’s President 2020 – 2021, although, because of the effects of Covid – 19, it has been a very unusual start to my year in office. We have continued to meet by virtual means but hope to be back to normal in September.
SI Wakefield is one of many clubs in the Yorkshire region and is part of a worldwide organization working together to advance human rights and the status of women and girls.
We are a friendly club, quite small with 24 members, involved in local, national and international projects. They are a mix of service and fundraising.
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays, 7.30 at the Barnabas Rooms, St Paul’s Church in Walton. We alternate between a business meeting when we discuss our current projects, plus national and international events, and speaker/ social evenings.
We are always keen to encourage new members – you will be made very welcome.
Please contact us via the link if you would like to come along one evening.
