Women Celebrate Together Whilst Raising Money For Ne Youth

Issue 89

International Women's Day has been going for over 100 years! It's taken some time to be picked up in the UK but its definitely a reason to celebrate. NE Youth have been putting on events for the past eight years and this year there were two ways to get involved.

The ‘This Girl Can’ 5km walk/run/jog event takes part at Exhibition Park every year on the evening of International Women’s Day. NE Youth took a group of 30 girls to take part in the event, all of them wore an IWD t-shirt which was supported by Arian EMS. They also had a stall at the marketplace to promote their services that keep young people active.

Across in wonderful Wylam there was a IWD supper club at The Wood Oven hosted by Dee Macdonald and Anna Foster from BBC Newcastle. There was fizz, pizza, live music by Channy and a fabulous raffle which raised over £1300. The night was supported by David Gray Solicitors who have been involved with NE Youth’s IWD events since they started in 2015.

Money raised will be used to provide a series of wellbeing sessions for girls supported by NE Youth across the region.
