Around 90 women attended the “Precious Pearls” event, organised by Ghar se Ghar, to celebrate International Women’s Day 2015.
This was held at Bury Park Community Centre on Thursday 5th March with the theme “Woman, who is your Neighbour?”
Women from across faiths including Christians, Hindus and Muslims and members of Satya Sai Trust assembled together to listen to different presentations and be entertained by each other.
Stories about neighbours were told, Near Neighbours projects were presented and talks about trafficking/modern day slavery and Neighbourhood Watch were given. These were all interspersed with a range of dancing, singing and poetry, from across different cultures, provided by the talented women present.
New friendships were made and old ones were renewed.
The evening concluded with a lot of talking and plenty of eating!
