Local women’s organisation has a big idea!


Woodford-based women’s organisation Soroptimist East London has a big idea and everyone is invited to join!

Members of the organisation are contributing their experience and skills to the #BigIdeasWeek, a week of motivating and stress-busting activities and webinars online with all monies going to charity. “There will be pilates classes, coaching, yoga, a chance to hear from a range of published authors and more,” said a spokesperson.

“Why are Soroptimist East London doing it? To help make other people’s big dreams come true. In this case, it’s the big dreams of The Ideas Partnership a Kosovo and UK based charity which works with the most marginalised communities in Kosovo including through education and income generation projects.  All donations made by attendees at the online events will go to The Ideas Partnership with Global Giving doubling the donations! Soroptimist members have been helping The Ideas Partnership in other ways too including providing online English conversation classes to The Ideas Partnership volunteers in Kosovo during covid lockdown.  In return, The Ideas Partnership have publicly celebrated the ladies as among their most committed volunteers during the covid lockdown which has affected Kosovo as well as the UK.”

Soroptimist East London includes members who live or work throughout East London.  The organisation focuses on empowering women to achieve positive change and sustainable development right here in East London as well as across the globe.

The week of activities is being held from 14 to 18 September 2020 online. Visit
