International Women’s Day fundraising dinner – Thursday 14 March 2019
08 January 2019
In my first article of 2019, I’m delighted to be able to tell you that there will, after all, be a fundraising dinner for this year’s International Women’s Day. You may remember that I held my final annual dinner for International Women’s Day last year here, my last one before Brexit. It turned out to be our most successful one to date, in which we raised over £9,000 for SB Overseas to support their work in providing education and literacy skills to Syrian women and children refugees living in Lebanon.
Now our brilliant women Labour MPs in Yorkshire and the Humber have decided to continue these annual dinners. For this year’s International Women’s Day, Holly Lynch – Labour MP for Halifax – is taking the lead with a dinner on Thursday 14 March 2019 at the Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield. It will feature guest speakers, a 3 course meal and a fundraising raffle.
If you wish to book tickets please email IWD2019tickets@gmail.com (and state the number of people you wish to book for) or contact Matt Dawson in Holly’s office on 01422 399515 for more information.
I’m so proud that our annual dinners to mark and celebrate International Women’s Day will be continuing, helping to raise much needed funding for charities and international groups that support women and girls all around the world.
