We arrange outings throughout the year, theatre visits, sponsored walks, and many that involve food, including a Charity Lunch, a Christmas Party and a Seniors’ Afternoon Tea.

We pay an annual subscription which covers a fee to Soroptimist International and the remainder to the club to cover room hire, incidental expenses etc. This for 2013/2014 will be £108 which can be paid monthly by Standing Order.

During 2012/13 we have supported The North West Air Ambulance; Target Ovarian Cancer; Margaret Haes Riding Centre for the Disabled; Hearing Dogs for the Deaf; both Rossendale and Bury Hospices; Gateway (a local Charity); and Victims’ Support among others.

Fun and friendship along with service and support served with good humour and laughter – that is Soroptimist International of Ramsbottom.
