International Women's Day 2010

International Women’s Day Ring Thing! – Benefit Event for Refuge

Posted in 2010 03 08, London by womeninlondon on 7 March 2010

We are having a all-day, ladies-only bell ringing event on Monday 8th March in honour of International Women’s Day.

We’ll be ringing some ladies quarter peals for International Womens’ Day on Monday 8th March. Our aim is to have fun and to raise funds for ‘Refuge’. The task is not easy, so accustomed are we to the helpful presence of our male mentors! However, we are a capable bunch and need not allow such challenges to interfere with good ringing!

We are hoping to raise funds for the charity, ‘Refuge’ (support of families/ victims of domestic violence) and gently urge your members both to wish us luck and consider supporting our endeavours that day by logging on to

Please lend us your support! Below are the times/ venues at which we’ll be ringing:
