Nottingham Shoosmiths Kick Off Charity of the Year with Euro 16 Fundraiser

The staff charity team at the Nottingham Branch of Shoosmiths, award-winning UK law firm, have chosen Nottingham Women’s Centre as their Charity of the Year – and have kicked off their fundraising this week with a Euro 16-based fundraiser. On 8 June, staff took part in dress down Wednesday, enjoyed a chip butty lunch, launched their Euro Fantasy Football League and took a punt in a Euro 16 lucky dip sweepstake, raising nearly £200 in the process! A huge thank you to everyone at Shoosmiths. All of us at the Women’s Centre are very excited to be working with the Shoosmiths team, it’s a firm which really helps to build a sustainable local community through its support of local charities, and you can watch this space for what else is coming up over the next few months.

 


Celebrating Volunteers Week With Afternoon Tea!

Here at Nottingham Women’s Centre, so much of what we do is possible only because of the skills, commitment and dedication of our volunteers.

To mark national volunteers week and, most importantly, to say thank you to our wonderful volunteers, we set 7 June aside for our volunteers to have some fun and treats.

We began the day with a trip to play adventure golf, which led to the discovery of some hitherto hidden talents, not to mention some surprising competitive streaks!

After the golf, some of our volunteers came back to the Women’s Centre to relax and enjoy afternoon tea  – although it was difficult to persuade some of them to sit down and take it easy for once!

All of the staff here at the Women’s Centre say a huge “thank you” to all of the amazing women who volunteer here and enable us to do so much more than we otherwise could.
