Sweet event for women’s rights
A WOMEN’S rights campaign run by a national charity is to be promoted in the town with a chocolate tasting event.
Oxfam Beverley is calling for people to join them for the event to be held in the Oxfam shop, Toll Gavel, Beverley, on Tuesday February 12.
The event is part of the Get Together campaign, which aims to raise life saving funds for Oxfam’s work with women in poverty, experiencing discrimination and domestic violence.
Supporters are invited to hold fund-raisers during the week on March 8, International Women’s Day, and all the money raised goes to Oxfam’s women’s projects around the world.
Chocolatier Claire Strawbridge will give the people of Beverley a taste of the type of Get Together events they could hold with their friends around International Women’s Day.
Claire, who owns Café Lempicka in Beverley, said: “This will be a great opportunity to find out more about Get Together and support Oxfam at the same time. It promises to be a fantastic event with chocolate samples being served! Feel free to come alone or bring your friends; you’re sure of a warm and tasty welcome.”
Oxfam shop manager John Paden said: “It is great to have Claire on board to promote Get Together in Beverly. The majority of people living in poverty are women. Get Together raises money for Oxfam’s work and it 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.”
