We’re working with partners across Wrexham to honour and highlight International Women’s Day and we’re looking for more groups, businesses or organisations to get involved.
The event is to celebrate all the Safer Street work that has been undertaken over the last few years as well as showcase all the good work that is being done by local companies, organisations and charities to support and empower women in Wrexham.
It takes place on Wednesday 8 March at Tŷ Pawb between 10am and 3pm.
On the day there’ll be lots of activities and offers along with stalls and entertainment but we’re looking for even more stall holders to come together to mark the occasion.
If you would like to be involved to celebrate and showcase your organisation or area of work please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details
