Thursday, 24th November - Soroptimists

I had to be in two places at once this morning so sent my mum to the weekly jumble sale at St NIc's. This week was a fundraiser for the Soroptimists and my mum did a great job buying a cutlery holder and a plate of yummy shortbread.

About our Club

Welcome to Newbury & District branch of Soroptimist International of Great Britain and Ireland. Our Meeting Venue is the annexe at St George’s Church, Wash Common, Newbury. Following speaker meetings, a short business meeting will be held.

Newbury and District was chartered in June 1956. At present we have 26 members from a variety of professions and voluntary and other organizations. We are active in the community and enjoy meeting together for fellowship and fun.

We meet on the 1st & 3rd Thursday of the month, except August, at St. George’s Annexe, Wash Common, Newbury, RG14 6NU at 7.30pm. Usually we start with coffee and biscuits followed by a speaker or business meeting, the evening ends about 9.45pm. During August we organize a summer luncheon at the home of one of our members to which we also invite our partners.

Each year our president nominates a charity for which we raise funds by organizing various events such as a coffee mornings and a quiz. This year we will be raising money for the Tissue Bank for the Breast Cancer Research Campaign.
