Soroptimist International - West Lothian

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

Welcome to SI West Lothian

Please note the site is currently being reviewed and updated

West Lothian is one of 32 council areas of Scotland, and one of its historic counties.

West Lothian lies on the southern shore of the Firth of Forth and is predominantly rural. The old county town was the royal burgh of Linlithgow, but the largest town (and the second largest town in the Lothian region after Edinburgh) is now Livingston.

There are also a number of smaller towns and villages, some of historic significance.

Who are We? 

West Lothian Club was founded in 1962. We are a friendly group of like-minded women who bring a wealth of knowledge and life experience to  our club.  Committed to  improving the lives of women and girls across the world through our volunteering and project work.  Soroptimists educate, empower and enable women and girls to achieve their potential.  The club currently has around 18 members.

Enquires are always welcome from any women interested in what we do. Please contact us via ‘Contact us’

Where and when do we meet

The club usually meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month at the Hilcroft Hotel in Whitburn https://www.hilcrofthotel.com/ Due to the current restrictions because of the Coronavirus pandemic our meetings are being held where possible virtually using ZOOM.

 

Celebrating the centenary of Soroptimist International.

To celebrate 100 years of Soroptimist International a set of playing cards have been produced. The Set tells the stories of many women who have ‘challenged’, providing an opportunity to celebrate women’s achievements within our Region.

This Set comprises a pack of cards and a booklet with biographical details of the women featured on each card, gives our Region the opportunity to mark 52 special women in a unique and original way.

The club are really pleased that one of our club members are featured in the pack.

You can order a set by visiting the website for Scotland South http://www.sigbi.org/scotland-south
