Caring Together joined other Neighborhood Networks at the annual Leeds University Tea Party yesterday. We were treated to food and music by the Jazz and Blues Society. Afterwards there was a raffle and we all played bingo. All in all, a great afternoon for everybody. Many thanks to the University for organising this and all of the students who helped out on the day.

A Woman’s Place?

Caring Together were delighted to be invited to become involved in the ‘A Woman’s Place?’ exhibition organised by Abbey House Museum. Members (and staff) were photographed as part of the exhibition which will run until December 2018.

On the centenary of some, not all, British women getting the vote, A Woman’s Place? looks at the struggles and progress of women in achieving equality and recognition.

The exhibition reveals how everyday life has changed for women in the home, school and workplace. We hope to inspire women and girls to believe that their ambitions and achievements are not limited by their gender, said Social History Curator Kitty Ross.
