We would like to say a huge thank you to Clare Mahony who has been fundraising for Refugee Women Connect, collecting donations for supplies for our peri-natal group. Clare has been swimming outdoors, mostly in the River Mersey, everyday in December and is carrying on throughout January. An incredible achievement particularly in this cold weather! If you would like to support her, leave a message of encouragement and donate to her fundraiser, here is the JustGiving page link:

You may not be a swimmer but if Clare has inspired you, why not think about fundraising for Refugee Women Connect in another way. Maybe you could gather a group of friends and sign up for a 5k, 10K or even a marathon and collect sponsorship for your run, there are lots of ways to fundraise for us and we'd love to hear about the ones you decide to do. We'll share it on our social media platforms and encourage your fundraising along the way.
