MEWN Swansea are celebrating International Women’s Day on the 29th March 2012.
The event will be taking place at Marriott Hotel Swansea. Doors open at 6.30pm with the evening starting at 7.00pm.
The evening will include a International buffet meal, table magic and a variety of performances for your entertainment.
The event will raise funds for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) women living in Wales who are fleeing domestic violence.
Often those who ask for our help are not entitled to public funds and are left with no money for essential living costs such as food, water, gas and electric.
Our aim for the evening is to raise as much money as possible to ensure that our safe house is available and accessible for women who have no recourse to public funds.
We would like to invite you and/or your organisation to support this vital cause by attending.
Ticket prices are £25 individually.
If you would like any further information or would like to purchase tickets, please contact Nasima on 01792 467722.
