Cockermouth and District Soroptimists

Programme Action

Programme action (community service) is the mainstay of Soroptimism and involves lobbying and raising awareness locally, nationally and internationally on human rights and the status of women, economic and environmental issues.

We have the same programme goals around the world and work mainly to address Goal 2:

"The Soroptimist federations will be linked in their efforts to improve the lives of women and girls through education, empowerment and enabling opportunities."

Our 2020-2024 Soroptimist Programme Focus Areas are:

  • People
  • Prosperity
  • Planet
  • Peace
  • Partnerships

In recent years we have been involved in many local, national and international projects to support our goals. We:

  • Supported Brain Tumour research
  • Worked with Age UK to support Dementia Friendly initiatives and Blue Week
  • Worked with guides to support 500 miles to raise money to provide prosthetic limbs for handicapped people in Africa.
  • Organised and lead the 'Painting Cockermouth Pink' event for the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign
  • Take groups of visiting children from Chernobyl for a day out.
  • Collect ring pulls to fund education in the Philippines for Purple Community Fund
  • Carried out a 'Safe and Sure' survey of local railway stations for a national safety survey of UK stations.
  • Annually carried out a survey of Flimby beach on behalf of the Marine Conservation Society project Beach Watch
  • Practically support the Calvert Trust by making beds every weekend throughout the summer.

Members with items donated to the Calvert Trust:

  • Lobby nationally to prevent violence against women.
  • Provide emergency 'New Start Bags' for trafficked women (a regional project)
  • Worked in partnership with Riversmeet to develop the Confluence Arts Regeneration project
  • Supported and co-funded the River Poetry event
  • Work in partnership with other agencies and groups: Balsam Bashing with Riversmeet, fundraising with Bassenthwaite Rotary
  • Worked in partnership with SI Penrith and District to do gardening, decorating and cleaning for Calvert Trust (day of service)
  • Displayed information on the effects of Cluster Bombs and Landmines in a pop-up-shop in Cockermouth and lobbied William Hague as part of a campaign to ban these devices
  • Provide a regular supply of food to the Foodbank which we also support with volunteers for packing and collection campaigns for example.
  • Actively promote Fair Trade and have held a Fair Trade wine Tasting and Nibbles evening
  • Helped with the Calvert Trust action week.
  • Raised awareness of world water day with Water Aid
  • Collected over 200 new donors for the Organ Donor register
  • Collect old spectacles for Vision Aid Overseas
  • Worked in partnership with Girl Guides on events including a coffee morning and a Fashion Show with clothes and accessories from Save the Children Shop
