It’s a sad truth that 1 in 5 women in Ireland over the age of 18 has experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse. To help to raise money for those aﬀected, Benefit is running a week-long University campus tour of Ireland in the run up to International Women’s Day (March 9). Benebabes will tour the country on the pink Benebus, stopping at ﬁve universities, oﬀering complimentary goodies, make-uppers and activities to raise funds for Women’s Aid.
Queens University, Belfast: Thursday 7th March
The Benetour concludes at my local uni, QUB in Belfast, where guests will be treated to make-uppers, brow services, photos, games and giveaways at the impossible-to-miss pink Benebus from 10am-4pm.
The evening event (aka big pink party!) will take place in ‘The Space’ at Queens Student Union from 6.30-8pm. Women’s Aid will give a short presentation on issues highly pertinent to young women before more make-uppers, games and cupcakes!
Admission is free & evening tickets are available at the day event - perfect excuse to get glammed up in support of an incredibly important cause.
