One of Norfolk’s top attractions is inviting people to learn all about the region’s top women’s organisations this Mother’s Day.

Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse will give people the opportunity to meet with organisations from the Women reaching Women group and learn about the work they are involved in with women across Norfolk and around the world.

The special event will be held on Sunday, March 11, and there will be activities for the whole family including stalls, crafts, talks, singing and story-telling.

The Norfolk Women reaching Women project is made up of a range of organisations including Mother’s Union, Soroptimists, Leeway, GATE, Freedom Charity, Norwich Dedza Partnership and Diversity Plus.

Mandy Proctor, CEO Leeway, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to network with other women’s organisations and share the excellent work that we do to make a difference to the lives of women in Norfolk.”
