Celebrating International Women's Day with Polish women in Wrexham
On 2nd of March we hosted an event for Polish women to celebrate International Women's Day. We also launched our new project - Peer Support Group for Polish women in the Wrexham area.
The International Women's Day is very popular in Poland. It's widely celebrated on the 8th of March to showcase women's achievements, roles in the society and it's a nice reminder of how important and valued women are. We have a lot of talented Polish women in Wrexham and Cheshire, they have a lot to offer not only to the Polish community. We asked them to help us to make other women feel special. They offered them free beauty treatments, health advice and products that helped them to have healthy lifestyles.
We were overwhelmed with the positive response and opinions from women who attended our event, they highlighted the need for such events in the local community.
"Thank you very much for organising this event. Everyone was very friendly, smiles were on everyone's faces. I met a lot of interesting women"
"Today's event was an incredible experience. It was an opportunity to meet new interesting women. I am very grateful that I could be here and share my passion with other women"
We launched our new project at the event. We will be running a peer support group for Polish women who live in the Wrexham area. It aims to support women who experience difficulties around mental health, addiction, domestic violence, parenting and those who simply feel lonely. The first meeting of the group is on 14th March at 11.30 in the Hightown Community Centre, Fusilier Way, Wrexham, LL13 7YF. We'll be promoting group meetings locally and on our Facebook and Twitter pages. The project is funded by #Mind.
