International Women’s Day

IWD2020 – Each for Equal

For 2020, SSJ decided to put on events for the whole week for our female service users. We wanted to make sure as many of our ladies had the chance to enjoy a pampering session, a cut and blow dry, Reiki, and even coffee mornings.

The events started on IWD, March 8th, and continued on throughout the week – the 9th, 10th and 12th.

You can read more about some of the events we put on, here. You can also read an update from Nicole, head of the Horizon project, here. 

Below you will find a selection of photos from Sunday and Monday. These ladies had the chance to experience what is seen as normal for the rest of us. There was even a bake-off competition to give the ladies the chance to show of their skills – with prizes donated by Southern Co-op.

There are also a selection of images of service users enjoying a free cut and blow-dry, thanks to HaHa Hairdressing Academy.

Thank you to everybody who supported our IWD events.

Keep an eye out on our news page for more information about IWD.

We will start planning for IWD2021 in December 2020. Stay tuned for updates.
