The incredible journeys of nine inspiring women from the southside of Glasgow were recognised by Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon during a special International Women’s Day Event, at Pollokshaws Burgh Hall on Friday 6th March.
All nine women who received a Community Achievement Award from Glasgow Kelvin College have overcome incredible challenges, such as domestic abuse, addiction, financial hardship and isolation. With support from charity Children 1st and each other they are using the skills and confidence they have gained from their experiences to give back to other families in their local communities.
As well as hearing from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, guests also heard from River City Actress Libby McArthur, and Anne Hughes from Sunny Govan Radio and enjoyed entertainment from the Rays of Hope Choir and the Scottish Bhangra Mascot Dancers and Dhol Drummers. Event sponsors included: Greggs, Collins Debden, Allbeauty.com, Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership, The Sarwar Foundation.
