Members gave out ‘Love me, love me not’ bookmarks to mark the International U.N Elimination of Violence Against Women day. Orange ribbons were tied on the railings of Grove Park, WSM with the Mayor taking part as well.
Members from our club planted 18 service whips around Primrose Hill Community Wood in Bath to mark our Soroptimist Centenary. Clubs throughout the world hae been doing this to mark the occasion whilst helping the planet. We planted 18 to represent each member of the club. Luckly we had a husband who helped and guided us along the way.
Members of the club got together to support a project being run by the Prince’s Trust to support Women’s job initiatives across the country. All members donated money towards the charity and had a lovely breakfast and chat at the Boston Tea Party cafe in Bath at the same time.
Members of our club again volunteered at the Circuit of Bath walk organised by Julian House. It was yet another successful turn out and raised much necessary money.
The 2021 theme for the international Day of Peace is ‘Recovering better for an equitable and sustainable world’
Soroptimist international celebrates 100 years in action for Gender Equality and Women Rights. 72,000 Soroptimists worldwide celebrate our 100th Anniversary and we lit 4 candles representing S.I, SIGBI, our South West and Channel Islands Region and our club.
