Each year on International Women’s Day we like to do something to show how special the women who use the project are. We want them to feel valued and appreciated. This year was no exception, so we headed to Lush for a morning of facials, massages and a good old chin wag!
On Monday 9th March six of the women who use the project headed down to Lush with Jayne, our health and wellbeing worker, for a morning of pampering. They were greeted by the fantastic team at Lush who worked hard all morning making our ladies feel welcomed and special. Rachel had a facial and said that the experience ‘made her feel cared for… it was amazing!’ Others had hand massages and all the ladies made their own bath bombs which they took home with them, along with other goodies. The women loved the experience and can’t wait to come again!
We then came back to the project to have a buffet lunch. Nick from QC’s Bagel Bar on Orchard Street kindly donated a selection of delicious bagels, and Gaynor Hague made some fantastic cupcakes for our ladies to enjoy. Sainsbury’s also donated a gift voucher, to cover the rest of the costs.
The women all had a fabulous day and felt very special.
Huge thanks to everyone who supported the day.
