Sessions for professionals

Our popular occasional sessions for professionals continue online for the moment; hosted by members of our Rose & Doorway teams, they provide not only an opportunity for us to share the work of The Magdalene Group, but also for professionals from other agencies to talk about their roles and experiences, & between us we can share best practice. Early-autumn sessions will take place from 10 - 11 a.m. on Wednesday 18th September & Tuesday 22nd October. If you would like to attend, please e-mail support@magdalenegroup.org or contact the office on 01603 610256 to book a place, as numbers are limited.

Cloth of Kindness

Cloth of Kindness

"The Drop-In room at The Magdalene Group received an exciting new addition this month with the presentation of a piece of textile art created by clients of our Doorway Women's Service with support from Sally-Anne & Gill from Cloth of Kindness. The fabric is constructed from squares, each hand sewn by a client and expressing what love and kindness mean to them as individuals. Each square is very different and very personal, with interpretations as varied as a shower, a cup of coffee, courage, light in the darkness, support, encouragement and friendship. The joined up squares have been backed with a soft, thick fabric to create a comforting blanket which now covers a chair and can be used by clients when warmth and love are particularly needed." Lucy Macleod, Trustee

Midnight Strut

The Midnight Strut last week was so powerful, with so many people coming together to make a stand against gender-based violence in our community. Thank you to BBC Radio Norfolk's Kayleigh Poacher for starting us off with a bang! We also want to thank Revd Naomi Tuma from St Peter Mancroft Church for honouring the 108 women lost to violence in a incredibly moving vigil. We will not forget their names. The poem read was Maya Angelou's 'Still I Rise' which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qviM_GnJbOM Massive thanks to everyone that attended and supported us.
