IWD 2020 Celebrations: Pre-Loved Clothes Sale & Craft Workshop

March 6, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

International Women’s Day 2020 – Friday March 6th 10am-2pm, The Bee Park Resource Centre – Shopping, Crafts, Tea, Cake & Chat! What more could a woman wish for ?

Organsied by NCCWN – North Leitrim Women’s Centre and Tawnylust Lodge Self Catering Accommodation Leitrim Ireland

Come and celebrate IWD with us and help raise funds for two worthy Women’s and Children’s Charities in Peru and Africa – women supporting women – Pre Loved Clothes Sale – Women’s clothes, hand bags and shoes as well as Baby & Toddler Clothes ???

Crafting with Liz & Phoebe – 2020 is the 25th Birthday of the North Leitrim Women’s Centre and we’re planning a few events and occasions through the year to celebrate and what’s a party without party decorations? So help us create a unique display of hand crafted bunting, each flag representing a woman – yourself or someone else, an issue, a memory, a friendship – anything you like that’s important to you or represents what the Women’s Centre means to you – we want to capture all these thoughts and memories and over the course of the the year create a display that will take pride of place in our celebrations – so come along and add your flag/memory to the collection – we’ll have loads of colourful bits and bobs, materials, fabric paints, screen printing and loads more on hand to get creative with ?

Further Information:
Proceeds from the clothes sale are in aid of Warmi Huasi Women and Children’s project in Peru. Proceeds from the sale of baby and toddler clothes will go to the charity Self Help Africa.

There have been links between Leitrim and the two charities in Peru and Africa for several years. The Holey Soles Hill Walking Club runs a very successful fundraising walk annually for Peru. Fr. Ed O’Connell, chairperson of Warmi Huasi Non Governmental Organisation in Peru has visited Leitrim several times and he and his team are most grateful for funds raised which go towards training, after schools services and library facilities for women and children living in poverty in Peru. One of the members of the Holey Soles Walking Group works for the charity Self Help Africa with a project in Uganda. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to the charities involved
