Soroptimists Celebrate 40 Years

On Saturday 20th June, Lady Corder joined members of Soroptimist (International) Guernsey to celebrate their 40th anniversary. 

Sharing a common aim to ""inspire, action, and create opportunities that transform the lives of women and girls through a global network of members and international partnerships", Guernsey's Soroptimist's membership of 34, join close to 100,000 others around the world.

Guernsey's branch had initially planned a parade through Town to mark the 100th anniversary of women in Guernsey being given the vote.

Lady Corder said she was "delighted to take part in the event, which was particuarly poignant as Guernsey moves into Phase 5".
