International Women’s Day 2020

Our celebration for our International Women’s Day was held at the Oasis Centre in Portsmouth.

Well What an event!

Lots of planning went into making this such a successful day. Despite it being a wet and cold day over 80 people turned up to the event. We had stalls which folks could browse and get information for example cancer research, there was photo booths and Bollywood and Folk dancing..

Special exhibits were put up as we worked on a saree project with the Naval Museum of Portsmouth, Fairtrade, Kings Theatre. Dr Miriam Safdar, Imam from ‘Tell Mama’ were just a few of the speakers. The highlight was letting everyone get on the dance floor with Bollywood and folk dancing.

Fantastic food specially prepared on the day by our wonderful catering team. It was definitely a day to remember. A big thank you to Gilly Reilly and Collette for their help and expertise in getting us set up .

This year we will be running our event on zoom, our theme “Choose to Challenge” will be hosting guests from FiLiA to talk on these themes. If you would like to join us for this event please leave your name in the comment box and one of our team will be able to get back to you.
