Women On Board Event Turnout
On the 10th of May at TJ’s Surf shop in Polzeath we held our first ever Women On Board event! We had an amazing turn out and support from women all over Cornwall. I did a talk on Tilia Rose Swim and managed to pull the founder of The Coconut Bee up with me! We talked about everything from the pressure from social media to who made our items, answering questions throughout.
Later the stage was taken over by the wonderful Abby Stewart an awesome longboarder from Crackington. Her moving talk ranged from her own battles with body positivity and being a women surfing among men. She got a loud cheer at the end with warm smiles all-round.
We ended the event with a raffle full of amazing prizes donated from loads of local brands. We raised £100! This means £50 will go to One Girl and the other £50 will go to Women Sports Trust.
A massive thank you to TJ’s for hosting the event and supplying the amazing food and drink, your support is amazing. Thank you to Abby and Holly for coming up and talking to all the women at the event. Also to all of the donations for the raffle.
As always thank you for your ongoing support for the brand, we can’t wait for the next one.
