President’s Message


 

A new Soroptimist International year has begun!

Under President Carolyn’s leadership, we had a very successful 2017-18.  Our ‘final flourish’ was the fun Quiz Night at the end of April which concluded our awareness- and fund-raising for Home-Start Runnymede and Woking, the local charity chosen by President Carolyn.   It is a great local charity and we are pleased to have

Our new year has already started in style with our regular fashion show and afternoon tea event ‘Tea & Temptations!’, which raised a considerable amount of money for the international Meru Women’s Garden Project.

During my presidential year, we will continue to work on behalf of our ongoing local and international projects, but I would also like to help local charities that support the victims of cerebral palsy.  It is a cause close to my heart for a young relative of mine is a sufferer.

I am honoured to have been elected President for the year – a role I approach with some trepidation but knowing that I will enjoy the full support of Club members and officers as we pursue the great Soroptimist ideals that are so important to us all.

I send greetings to the members of SI Durban and SI Pretoria Tshwane in South Africa, with whom we have strong friendship links.

If you would like to join our Club or attend an event, please do get in touch (through the Contact Us page on this website or via Twitter @WokingSorop and Facebook. We will be delighted to hear from you!

Ann Moffett, President 2018-19
