Links, Social and Friendship

Our fundraising activities always involve a good social side. Some events, such as the Kirkgate event and summer lunch are as much social as fundraising. We also arrange theatre visits and dinners and visit other clubs.

We are part of the northern region along with 11 other clubs. There are quarterly meetings which are good opportunities to meet and make new friends and listen to interesting speakers.

Cockermouth club has links with clubs in  Murau, Austria Northallerton and Edinburgh corresponding and occasionally visiting each other.

We belong to the Federation of Great Britain and Ireland (which includes some commonwealth countries). Soroptimist members from many different countries attend the annual federation conference in October / November each year. Some of our club members are already planning to attend the next Federation conference!

The International dimension of Soroptimism develops a wider perspective.

'Number 63' in London is a hotel available for bookings from any member of the public but which is managed by Soroptimists.
