International Women’s Day 2018
Theme: Achieve gender equality and empower rural women and girls. Together we can empower rural women in the Pacific.
International Women's Day (8 March) is an occasion marked by women's groups around the world. This date is also commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday; when women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day.
The Women’s Centre – Rodney are inviting women to a shared lunch on Thursday the 8th of March from 12pm onwards to recognize International Women's Day with a celebration of the diversity of NZ women.

ARE YOU FEELING GENEROUS THIS CHRISTMAS
With the Support of ANZ Warkworth Bank, Warkworth Mitre 10 and the Westpac Warkworth the Women’s Centre Rodney
are now collecting for their annual appeal to support local families facing h hardship over the Christmas period. This appeal targets fam
ilies who do not have the means to purchase toys or other Christmas treats. The support families receive over this period is often the difference between families celebrating Christmas or not being able to at all.
Gifts for children under the age of 17 years and gifts for adults are much appreciated. Suitable gifts could include games, sports equipment, art supplies, educational toys, clothing, beach gear and sunscreen, books, non-perishable food, toiletries and vouchers.
If possible we would like to avoid passing on toys that require batteries and second-hand goods. Donated items can be left at the Women’s Centre, 10 Morpeth Street, Warkworth between 9am and 2.30pm.
The aim is to pass these gifts onto families by the 18th December.
