As we couldn’t meet for coffee and cake this year, we decided to hold a virtual raffle event instead – and raised £170 pounds! Well done team!!
It is with sadness that we mark the life and service of one of our longest-serving members, Joan Spiby, who left us on 11th September 2020, at the age of 85. Joan was a Club member for more than 32 years, and held every Officer position over the years, including three terms as Club President, and 18 years as Club Secretary. She was a determined and vocal advocate of the mission and activities of Soroptimism and inspired many to join the organisation. Joan was a keen advocate of community service including being a Local Parish Councillor, as well as championing women’s football – at 18 years old she played in the Dick Kerr team, which was considered to be the best in England in their day. In her last years, Joan suffered from Parkinson’s Disease. Should you wish to make a donation in Joan’s memory,
Here we are, the Executive Committee, getting together safely and remotely using ZOOM technology! It was such fun!
We had a fun Annual Installation Lunch on 14th April at Statham Lodge Hotel, Lymm. Around 60 guests joined us to salute outgoing President Liz Smith for her two years of service and to welcome incoming President Jackie Alexander. Click here to see photos of the event. [new_royalslider id=”3″]
Outgoing President Liz Smith presented two stalwarts of SI Warrington with their Long Service Certificates at our Annual Lunch on 14th April! Congratulations to Doreen and Joan, both Past Presidents of SI Warrington, whose years of dedication to the Soroptimist cause both at home and abroad are legendary! Their many years of experience is also invaluable to those of us who are newer to the club! Doreen Worsley – 32 years Joan Spiby – 33 years (Photos courtesy of Rhona Bowler – SI Warrington)
