We call our voluntary work “Programme Action”, what we do can be both practical and hands on. At a local level we aim to improve the lives and status of women and girls through education, empowerment or enabling activities. In a wider context we act as a global voice for increasing access to education and leadership for women and girls worldwide.
We support local organisations such as PATCH both raising funds and donating goods. Recently we donated funds toward equipment for Milford Haven Gymnastics, a group that works with young people from the locality.
We raise awareness of health issues by campaigning locally, for instance our “Paint the Town Pink” initiative, Alcohol Awareness in local schools and Endometriosis.
Together with clubs throughout the country we work with organisations overseas such as the BIG project…Birthing in the Gambia improves the services and life chances for women and their children.
We organise a Charity Film Night at the Torch Theatre, last year it was “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” in aid of Breast Cancer Research. This year “Philomena” will be shown in aid of our local Women’s Refuge.
