International Women’s Day takes place every year on March 8th.
Take a look at events planned. Keep up to date with what is happening on the International Women’s Day – Nuneaton and Bedworth Face Book Page.
Every one got the chance to share their thoughts on what would make an amazing local Day through Ideas Factories organised by our own Dawn Nicholls. More importantly people pledged their support to help make it happen!

#UKCharityWeek is always held within the first full week of December, which in 2017 means 4th-10th December.
Let’s celebrate all that’s good about charities in the UK and say a BIG thanks to those who support them.
Here’s a bit about us and the work we do…
Local community as equal partners in pool, play and support
Mel has been working with Coventry Sports Foundation to help encourage more people into the pool. ‘The Big Paddle’ helps adults who are nervous about swimming to get confident in water. No swimming costumes were needed and help was on hand if needed. Tea and cake were provided afterwards as a treat for those who mastered their fears.
If you would like to try one of their FREE adult swimming lessons contact Natalie – Goswim@covsf.com for more details
Dawn from our Grapevine Empowerment Service has been working with Nuneaton & Bedworth Council to host their first Ideas Factory.
The team are raising money for Movember by donning these tasty moustaches.

Did you Know?
Men are facing a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. They are dying too young, before their time. Men die on average six years earlier than women. But you can be the difference to help us change this startling stat. Get involved with the November movement.
The ladies at Grapevine didn’t want to miss out on the Movember fun!
So they have become Mo Sistas. If you haven’t heard of Mo Sistas before here is a definition:
Mo Sistas play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo.
Besides having fun with moustaches we will also be fundraising to help the Movember campaign. Men die on average six years earlier than women. Movember raises awareness for men’s health and aims to change this statistic.
If you would like to get involved you can help us raise funds and/or you can join our team, send your email to Michelle and she will get you added to the GV Bro’s Team: firstname.lastname@example.org
