Paul and Mary Grealish of The King's Head Bistro, together with Ronan Scully of Gorta Self Help Africa, are hosting a special International Women’s Day lunch tomorrow (Friday ) in aid of Gorta Self Help Africa.
The three-course charity lunch will feature The King's Head Bistro’s spring menu which showcases some of the best Galway food producers, and as a special International Women’s Day treat guests will be served their lunch by Mayor Niall McNelis, Galway Bay FM’s Ollie Turner, and members of the Connacht Rugby team.
Guest speaker Mary Sweeney will give a special talk about her work with Gorta Self Help Africa by sharing her experiences and stories of women who are doing great work to make their families’ lives better in some of the poorest regions in Africa.
Mary Grealish of The King's Head Bistro said: “We are delighted to be hosting the International Women's Day lunch in The King's Head for the second year in a row. It was a wonderful afternoon last year, and is a great opportunity for people to do something different this International Women’s Day, and have fun as they raise awareness and fundraise to support the work of Self Help Africa and its women and family projects spanning nine countries in Africa.”
Gorta Self Help Africa works with some of the poorest communities in Africa, helping to provide women and families with the ability to produce more food, earn more from their farming activities, and helping mothers and fathers to provide a better life for their children.
The lunch is taking place on International Women’s Day 2018, tomorrow (Friday ), from 12.30pm to 2.30pm.
Tickets are €30 per person and all are welcome, with all proceeds going to Gorta Self Help Africa. To book, email [email protected] or call Ronan Scully on 087 618 9094.
