International Women's Day - Get together & Oxfam fundraiser

  • Mar 8, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

At our recent bookclub, a few of us discussed the idea of a get together and fundraising for Oxfam to celebrate International Women's Day on the 8th of March.

A chance to get together and raise some funds for women's charity at the same time.

So, as it falls on a Friday this year, we thought we'd look into the opportunity for a get together and fundraising for Oxfam to celebrate International Women's Day on the 8th of March.

Altoria have confirmed use of the private space in their Boutique room.
So you don't have to dine before coming out, we've arranged a tapas buffet included.

*** Cost - will be £5 per person. Payable on the night. This will include a tapas buffet from their Pancho tapas restaurant and our own private room, bar & DJ. ***

We also have some other surprises we are working on, (including a raffle with lovely prizes), and I'm crossing my fingers for one or two other things.


Join us to celebrate International Women's Day on 8 March 2013 and raise money to transform the lives of women living in poverty around the world.

    Ladies, thank you so much for a lovely evening. We raised £178.50 and after costs to Altoria, that means £116 to Oxfam. Congratulations to all the prize winners. 1 or 2 people had left before the draw and won a prize, so i will be in touch today. Thank you also to Altoria, Strada, Esque, Blaze, Eleven, The Spa, Vinteas for their generous prize donations. (hope i've not forgotten any!) Xx

    I'm so sorry to do this last minute but my back has gone out, & the pills are knocking me out. Feel particularly bad as this was my suggestion. Hope you all have a great evening.

    Hi all! I've been living in Coventry for over two years and keep seeing rather interesting events but not finding time to attend any! This one, however, is for an important cause so I will be there! I am also looking forward to meeting new people!

    Hi all,
    I've just heard back from Altoria and they are looking forward to seeing us there on Friday night from 7:30pm.

    We'll be collecting on the night for Oxfam projects for women in the UK and beyond. We will be using the same room that we use for book club on the 2nd floor - with its own bar and there will either be our own DJ or the music from the bar downstairs (which they have promised will be mainstream!)

    Really looking forward to seeing you there

    Sounds like a nice event. Unfortunately I won't be able to join you this time as I have a visitor arriving Friday evening. Hope you all have a lovely evening.

    Unfortunately, I gave up on feminism when the drycleaners lost my dungarees.
