Raising awareness and money for International Women’s Day

14 March 2019

An International Women’s Day event at Southend Hospital, which took place on Friday 8 March, raised a total of £238 for Southend Domestic Abuse Project.

The day featured some great inspiring NHS journey stories from staff, nutritional facts from our Dietetics department, Encore Career presentation and Diversity Network group information. DW Fitness Gym kindly attended and gave away day passes to staff and raffled personal training sessions.

Louise McIver, Equality Diversity and Inclusion Manager, said: "Thank you to all staff who baked cakes and donated to our raffle. The day was a success and we raised £238 for a local organisation who relies purely on donations to exist.

"This is a great illustration of celebrating equality diversity and inclusion within the Trust and supporting our local community at the same time."
