Motherwell Cheshire launch campaign #seeitbeit
Motherwell Cheshire CIO, a Cheshire based charity that supports the mental health and inspires women and girls in Cheshire, is re-launching a successful campaign to gain new nominations for 2021.
#SeeItBeIt is being launched to once again celebrate the inspirational women of Crewe. The campaign was first released as part of International Women’s Day 2020 where 12 local role models were selected from the large number of nominations. The 12 chosen were: Tracey Allen, Gill Baxter, Liz Bedson, Emma Buckley, Tracy Challoner, Sarah Darlington, Pamela Graley, Hilary Hamilton, Shirley Irlam, Helen Johnson, Karen Lynch and Susan Pickup.
Motherwell Cheshire are relaunching this campaign for their 2021 Women’s Day events, which will be held virtually to raise positivity and a sense of celebration during these difficult times. As with last year’s campaign #seeitbeit is in memory of Crewe’s late councillor Dorothy Flude.
Kate Blakemore, Motherwell Cheshire CEO said: “We are asking the people of Crewe to nominate their local role models, who either live or work in the area, to be celebrated at our Virtual International Women’s Day event taking place 6th-8th March.
“Whether that woman is a teacher, GP, neighbour, friend, or relative, we want to hear about them.
“Each nomination will then be celebrated (with permission) on social media and the shortlisted women will be celebrated with their names being added to our own very special blue plaques. The campaign is being sponsored by Crewe Town Council and we are extremely grateful for their support.
“We consider Crewe Women’s Day to be one of our flagship events; since its inception in 2015 it has expanded and this year will see a vibrant, uplifting virtual event, with free workshops alongside the talks, performances and marketplace.”
