Links, Social and Friendship

The fundraising activities we are involved in always involve a good social side. Some events, for example, the Castle events and summer BBQ 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 13 other clubs. There are quarterly meetings and an annual conference which are good opportunities to meet and make new friends and listen to interesting speakers.

Cockermouth club has links with clubs in America, Ireland, Northallerton and Scotland corresponding and occasionally visiting each other.

We belong to the Federation of Great Britain and Ireland (which includes the original commonwealth) and many 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.
