8.3.18 a celebration of International Women’s Day

A group of 12 women enjoyed a very interesting and informative walk around Bow to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Led by Registered Tour Guide Eli Bloom we heard inspirational stories from the lives of influential women who worked selflessly to promote social justice in their lifetimes.

We heard about political pioneers, philanthropists, suffragettes and social reformers all associated with Bow in the East End and were able to view the buildings and monuments they were associated with.

The walk ended at Unity community cafe at the Bromley by Bow centre where coincidentally a very well attended event was taking place also celebrating International Women’s Day!  We were all grateful to enjoy some warming soup and have the chance to chat informally and form new friendships.

Redbridge Faith Forum would like to thank Eli for giving so freely of her time to give us a wonderful morning and the opportunity to raise some funds for the charity.  Eli has a website www.londonatyourfeet.com and can offer a range of walks to groups.
