Katy Forrester, self esteem coordinator, said: "As a women's charity we wanted to do something special for the girls to celebrate International Women's Day this year.

"To celebrate we have organised a special workshop to be led by a speaker from Youth Speak. This will be an interactive and fun workshop for the girls to attend and celebrate women."

The workshop is due to be held on March 24 and is open to girls aged eight to 12 from 4:30pm to 5:30pm.
