Glasgow CCC held the “Girlie Day Out” event on Saturday (24th February) in the St Mungo Museum. It was a great afternoon organised for female patients, carers of people with bleeding disorders and any of their family members.
The day was well attended and started with a bit of lunch and some very short informative discussions around:
- Women and girls bleeding problems (Dr Catherine Bagot, Consultant Haematologist, Glasgow)
- Talking Red (Lynn Wild, Talking Red Ambassador)
- Women and Girls Malawi and Kenyan Experience (Susan Warren, Honorary President Haemophilia Scotland)
Following these discussions the afternoon went on to some fun activities – manicures, henna tattooing, decoupage… finishing the day with tea, cake and bollywood dancing!!
Feedback from the event has all been positive and was evidently stacks of fun for all who attended!!!
A big thank you to all staff at the Glasgow Centre and the speakers who gave up their Saturday for this event.
