‘Shining a Light’ on our #StrongMCRWomen: International Women’s Day 2022
Members of Wythenshawe Good Neighbours celebrated International Women’s Day 2022 at Northenden Social Club on 8 March.
Manchester’s theme this year was ‘Shining a Light’ on #StrongMCRWomen.
We wanted to recognise the strength shown by our members over the last two years. With funding from Manchester City Council (for International Women’s Day community events) we invited our very own resilient women to join us for afternoon tea, along with guests from the community.
Our Chair, Marie Greenhalgh, wrote an amazing poem to shine a light on the contributions of older Manchester women to the city’s pandemic response. Our own theme of resilience was explored over chats, laughs, savoury treats and tea and cakes (generously provided by volunteer baker, Joan).
We even had fun with afternoon tea ‘selfie’ props and photos that put our strong women in the frame!
