Friday 8th March

Please note this event is now happening from 6pm to 8pm

Friday 8th March is International Women’s Day and Oxfam will be celebrating the day through a variety of events in order to raise money for women worldwide.

Not ones to miss out on a chance to get involved and raise awareness, here at Oxfam Petergate, we are organising an event in entitled ‘Oxglam York’. Oxglam York will be hosted by Pure Hair and Beauty on Grape Lane (just around the corner from us) between 6 and 8pm.

‘Oxglam York’ is an event aimed at everyone who enjoys a Friday night out.

We are offering a pre-night out pamper, where you can get your hair, nails and make up touched up by professionals before heading out for a night on the town, all for a £5 donation to Oxfam. If you are anything like me; then the chance to take the stress out of getting ready, and have an actual professional recreate ‘salon perfect hair’, instead of  spending the evening fraught with hair-envy because compared to everyone else, your fringe ‘just does not look right’ sounds ideal, especially as the money you spend will be supporting a good cause.

The money raised through the event will go towards supporting Oxfam’s ongoing women’s projects, in areas that need it most. For more information on how to organise your own event and how Oxfam supports women around the world click here.

So, why not get your night off to a great start join in the pre-night pamper with Oxglam?

We’ll be using #Oxglamyork to spread the word.
