Soroptimist International Leigh & District

Soroptimist International is a Women's worldwide volunteer organisation which holds special Consultative Status with the United Nations. There are clubs in 132 countries with over 80,000 members making it the largest Women's service organisation in the world. An annual membership subscription is paid to cover general club,Region and Federation expenses. Leigh Soroptimist Club was founded in 1947 with members coming from a wide background of skills, talents and ages which ensures we "Make a Difference" in our project Programme Action work. We work as a Club or with a variety of local partners on Environment, Health and Education projects. For example, locally, we have worked with the Women's Refuge; DIAS which helps victims of domestic violence; Child sexual exploitation and Modern Day Slavery awareness raising. We have collected 38,000 bras (new and nearly new) for recycling purposes which has raised much needed funds for the National 'Breast Cancer Now' Campaign.
Internationally, we rapidly respond to national disasters such as the Nepal Earthquakes and the Meru Garden Project in Kenya providing agriculture training and equipment to enable women to feed their families..
Although a Women's group addressing gender equality issues we are very much family and community focused.
