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.

New Group – Compassionate Mind

Compassionate Mind Therapy

Compassionate Mind is a form of psychological therapy which helps people to develop more compassion for themselves and others. It is particularly helpful for people who are self-critical, who have negative thoughts and feelings about themselves and experience high levels of shame. It looks at the way our brains and bodies work together to help us experience different emotions; the aim of the group is to learn skills which can help us to feel safe and soothed during times when we might normally feel anxious or scared.

This group will be running for six weeks in total from the 23rd of February to the 30th of March 2017. It will be held on Thursday mornings each week from 11am-1pm.
