There’ll be a variety of stalls from crafts, cakes and cards to therapies and photography sessions.

Come and find out how you can host your own Get Together on International Women’s Day on 8th March – while raising money for Oxfam.

An Oxfam Get Together can be absolutely anything; from cocktails or a movie night at home, to a killer quiz with colleagues or even just a cuppa with friends.  Whatever you love to do, do it for women worldwide.

 

For further information visit The Oxfam Get Together pages on their website. Register to host an event and you’ll be sent a fabulous host kit full of tools and ideas to get you started.

The majority of people living in poverty are women.  Get Together raises money for Oxfam’s work transforming the lives of women around the world who are experiencing poverty, discrimination, domestic violence and a lack of education.  Oxfam helps women reclaim their rights and make their voices heard: from helping girls access schools in Burkina Faso to supporting women farmers in Ethiopia to become entrepreneurs and provide for their families.

Get Together coordinator Clare Rudall said: ‘An Oxfam Get Together is brilliantly simple. Just do something fun with the people you love spending time with – and raise some money at the same time. I’m organising a party at a local tea room with my friends.’

To get involved and for further information contact Clare Rudall on 0300 200 1269, or email her (scroll down the page from the link to find Clare).
