Million Women Rise – coach tickets on sale

We’ve organised a coach to the annual Million Women Rise march taking place in London on 11th March 2017.

This year is the tenth anniversary of the march, an annual show of strength and solidarity by women, in protest against all forms of male violence towards women.

Coach tickets are available from reception for £15 / £10 concessions. If you can go, but still want to support, consider sponsoring a seat for a woman who might not otherwise be able to go.

Our local Million Women Rise organiser, Shellboy, is holding a fundraising event at the Centre on Tuesday 14th February – an alternative valentine’s meal.  Food will be served from 4:30pm – 7pm in exchange for a donation towards the coach. Come along to this one off social eating event and support a brilliant cause.
