International Women’s Day celebrations

March 13, 2012

Last week, I attended the Oxfam Boutique’s fashion show which they held in celebration of International Women’s Day. As part of it, they held an auction to raise some funds for the cause, with a dress donated by Alex Jones from the One Show, as well as holding a raffle with prizes donated by local companies. There was entertainment from local poet/comedian Mab Jones, who, I must say, was incredibly talented, as well as music from Ellie Makes Music, not to mention the fashion show itself. Students from Coleg Morgannwg were given unsaleable clothing from the shop to transform into wearable items, which are now once again on sale in the shop. The ultimate in recycled clothing.

Here are a few photos from the evening:

And, just to remind ourselves why we’re celebrating and campaigning for equality for women, here’s a lovely video:
