A number of fundraising and social meetings, including a summer party and a charity walk (raised €1,100 for Bandon Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber) were organised during the summer months.  In more recent times,  a gramophone evening was held at  the local golf club, at which  €1,000 was raised for the charity Aid Bandon Children. 

In early December, a visit was received  from two members of the Widness Club near Liverpool, Marjorie and Lillian.  One of the members entertained the ladies at Killarney golf Club on the first of December, and later, the President  met the ladies with several other members at Mary Rose's Cafe in Bandon on the 4th of December. See  photographs of this event.  We gave the ladies a gift of Bandon Calendars.  One of the photographs represents Lillian wearing her past president Soroptimist badge.

Prior to Christmas, one of the members threw a social evening at her home with a silent auction, which raised approximately € 700 for local charities.  Since then,  our Christmas party took place with a delicious meal at the Poacher's Inn and gift exchange.  In the next few weeks  the annual Public Speaking event will take place  and a Bridge night which will benefit St. Vincent De Paul.  Other forthcoming events include the Women's Day of Prayer on Friday the 7th of March.  Two other social evenings are envisaged, including a wine evening and a film night.
