Our 218 service celebrated International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018.

The women in the residential and community engagement services made the posters for the day. One of the posters was of a dress and the other represented the content of a women’s bag.

All of the people we support who attended received a purple goody bag filled with perfume, pamper cream, positive affirmation cards and Grace Chocolates. The gifts were donated by Lush and the perfume was donated from local businesses .The chocolates were bought from Grace Chocolates, to support women in the justice system.

Grace Chocolates is a social enterprise supporting women to break down barriers and change lives. The 218 service have a service user who is currently on placement with Grace Chocolates. Feedback from various people we support and staff from the day was very positive and reflected that the whole day was inspirational and they enjoyable.
