Guernsey: Edwina Currie To Be Guest Speaker At Charity Dinner In Guernsey
Last Updated: 21 March 2017

The Guernsey branch of Soroptimist International have announced that Edwina Currie, former politician, will be the after dinner speaker at their annual dinner, which is sponsored by Carey Olsen.

Edwina Currie was Conservative MP for South Derbyshire and Health Minister in the Margaret Thatcher government. She has since become a respected author, speaker and broadcaster and a contestant in celebrity realty TV shows including Strictly Come Dancing, I'm a Celebrity Get me Out of Here and Celebrity Mastermind, which she won in 2004.

Soroptimist President, Karen Jagger, said "It is great news that Edwina Currie will be joining us. She is an excellent speaker and we are promised an entertaining and informative evening with her participation. Although our organisation is primarily focussed on female initiatives, this event is open to both men and women and we are hoping the Guernsey community will come out in force to support it."

She added "We are delighted that the Lieutenant Governor and our Patron, Lady Corder, as well as the Chief Minister, Gavin St Pier and Mrs Jane St Pier who is Chair of the Youth Commission have confirmed they will be attending."

The black tie event takes place on 8th March 2017 at St Pierre Park Hotel. Individual tickets and tables of 10 are available to book on - or by contacting Shirley Marsh on 01481 72144.

The event is in recognition of International Women's Day on 8th March which aims to celebrate the success and on-going work of the Soroptimist organisation and the difference it makes to women and girls worldwide. 

Soroptimist International is a worldwide charitable network aiming to promote human rights, development and peace through international good will and understanding and to help to improve the lives of women and girls nationally and internationally. They undertake initiatives such as education, healthcare and environmental programs as well as food security and violence and conflict resolution.  Further information can be found at
