Thank you, thank you, thank you to Young Women’s Movement member Hayley MacDonald and friends who raised over £320 for us last weekend at their ‘Fierce Female Friday’ fundraising night of dance, celebration and empowerment.

The event was run by Strut Sweat Smile dance teacher Hayley on 17 February at Dianne Inglis Studios in Camelon, Falkirk. The event welcomed all genders, with a focus on providing a safe space for girls and women. 30 people turned up (aged 9 – late 60s!) and raised money for the work that we do at The Young Women’s Movement to create safe spaces like Strut Sweat Smile and to shine a spotlight on young women’s voices across Scotland. Check out our Impact Report for more info.

Falkirk Youth Dance Company performed ‘Be The Change’, a new dance choreographed by Zoe Thomson, Artistic Director at Falkirk Youth Dance Company, and Maya Angelou’s ‘Phenomenal Woman’.

Body building coach Sage MacDonald ran a power posing taster session and self love photo booth full of silly props. The winner of ‘bra pong’ went home with a pair of red velvet boob cupcakes and runners up won a single boob each (we love this, thanks Luscious Lovelies!)  Guests were invited to share one thing they love about themselves at a self care station and Hayley ran a One Billion Rising dance workshop.

A big shout out to local businesses Falkirk On Fire Hot Yoga, Dianne Inglis Studios, Luscious Lovelies and Hayley’s friends and family for donating raffle prizes.

Thanks for raising all this money for young women and girls in Scotland, Hayley and friends. We freaking love you. x
