York St John Supports Kyra in Aid of International Women's Day
Category: Industry News
A day of activities led by Yorkshire businesswomen and York St John University in support of women's charity Kyra was held on Friday 8 March. Local charity Kyra, founded in 2013 by Yvonne Copley began as a support centre for women, run by women, providing encouragement, companionship, information, training, and importantly, a sense of belonging. The charity supports women to help overcome challenges and make change in their lives.
There is no such thing as a typical Kyra woman, so to mark International Women’s Day 2019, Kyra’s event, ‘Every Woman Heard’ gave all women a unique insight into the work and impact of the charity.
Dr.Rebecca Biggins from York Business School at York St John University and Kyra Trustee was part of the team hosting the day where the University was holding a stall and running sessions. “This is a fabulous opportunity for women from all walks of life to be inspired by Kyra’s achievements and celebrate their life-changing work.”
Visitors were able to take part in activities, visit stalls, discover mini-courses, therapy tasters, talks, poetry, fabulous food, plus ways to get involved and meet others in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
