President Yvonne Atkinson and the Soroptimist International of Crosby entertained friends, family and fellow members at their annual charter dinner at the West Lancashire Golf Club in Blundellsands.

Yvonne told members of her connections with Pakistan, including her recent visit to the Sialcot Hospital. She urged everyone to look beyond the headlines to the people themselves – ordinary Pakistanis – and to the ongoing work that enhances opportunities for women.

Guest speaker was Jean Gee, President of Soroptimist International of Keighley, where members have been working with Asian mothers and their children.
