Soroptimist International Hoylake & West Kirby

Soroptimist International Hoylake & West Kirby

What is a Soroptimist?

Founded in 1921, Soroptimist (Latin: best of sisters) International is a world-wide volunteer service organisation for women who work to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities both here in Great Britain and throughout the world.  First and foremost is friendship through helping and supporting others with local, regional, national and international projects with women’s and girls’ issues at the forefront. There are over 3000 clubs throughout the world in 123 countries striving to achieve the “best for women”.

 

About our Club

Soroptimist International Hoylake & West Kirby held their first meeting in March 1946 in the Marigold Cafe in West Kirby. We will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary in 2016 as will our sister Club in Trondheim, Norway, with whom we have a close friendship.

We usually meet twice a month.  On the second Monday in the month at 7.30 pm at Hoylake Sailing Club we have a meeting to plan our activities ending with a relaxing drink together. On the fourth Monday in the month we generally have a social evening which could involve a meal with a guest speaker; a visit to the theatre; or we might host a fundraising event.

sorop2Throughout the year we enjoy helping a range of local community programmes and activities such as taking part in the parade of the Festival of Firsts, helping the Wirral Foodbank, assisting with the Community Lunch at St Luke’s Church in Hoylake. As well as serving the community, we support a variety of local and international charities.

If you are interested in helping to make a difference and would like to learn more about us please visit www.sigbi.org.uk or contact Gillian Creek on 0151 632 5520.  We would love to hear from you and visitors and new members would be made most welcome.
