International Women’s Day cake sale raises £179!

The women supported

Wow what a fun day. Tuesday 8th March was International Women’s Day (and pancake day of course!). MicroLoan’s work in Africa is about empowering the women we help and allowing them to be in control of their own lives so this is a very important day.

Alice Leslie (office manager extraordinaire) and I held a cake sale in the foyer of the Barley Mow Centre. We both stayed up till the early hours of Tuesday morning frantically baking away, as did our wonderful accountant Cathlin Norris, and managed to produce a beautiful spread of delicious cakes, cookies and cheese straws (my favourite!).
