Saturday 28th August 2010 - What a day to remember !!
The rain fell but our spirits weren't dampened when the WomenMATTA Team and the Pankhurst Centre entered a float in the Manchester Pride Parade. The concept of the float was that we created a garden where women can put down roots, grow and flourish - much in the way that the Pankhurst Centre operates by providing a safe women only space where women can feel safe and free to learn, socialise and address any issues they may be facing. Staff, volunteers and service users designed and created an array of dazzling costumes and a fantastic float showcasing their amazing talents. There were thistles, roses, lilies, daisies and many many more.
We all had a brilliant day which we had been working towards for the previous twelve weeks.
