Bel and Sarah had a MASSIVE morning on Get Cereal celebrating all things women on International Women’s Day. The girls talked to five amazing women about their careers and plans for IWD and played a ripper all female playlist!
The CEO of the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre, Jo Porter, spoke with Bel and Sarah about the wide range of support and events that the QVWC offers.
