Soroptimist member gets award from Home Secretary

A 'Call for Action' against human trafficking has won Jackie Paling an award from Home Secretary Theresa May.

Mrs May, who is also Maidenhead's MP, presented the award to Jackie for her work raising awareness about human trafficking.

Jackie is a member of Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead Soroptimist International, the organisation for professional women.

This year she helped launch a 'Call to Action' across the Soroptimist network, calling on members to speak to their MPs about the need for a modern slavery bill.

Jackie  was one of two Soroptimists to receive a Marsh award - presented annually on Anti-Slavery day by the Human Trafficking Foundation and Marsh Christian Trust. She said: "Although this award has our names in it, it really belongs to all the Soroptimists in the UK who are working tirelessly on anti-slavery issues."
