Women’s Day Event

St Peter’s Centre is organising an International Women’s Day on Saturday 5th March 3-6pm due to high demand. As part of the celebration, we would like to share information on various services available to women in Coventry.

This we hope will increase their knowledge of where to go for help or how they can be empowered or improve their own personal developments. In view of this, we are inviting local organisations that offer such services to participate by holding stalls to share information on what they provide especially to women. In addition to this, there will be speakers, food, fun activities, etc.

Venue: Charles Street, Hillfields,  Coventry CV1 5NP.
Date: Sunday 5th March 2016
Time: 3:00 – 6:00 PM
