Given the current crisis a donation to the Feed the Heroes initiative will be made, by the organisers , following the workshop, to show solidarity with healthcare workers and also to Women's Aid & Alone to reflect the pressure on their vital services. We offer small discounts for those on #covid19 welfare payments, or any welfare payments, those unemployed or unable to work, including students - just message us and we'll come back to you.
