 26th February – Shekinah Pamper Day

Local beauticians, hairdressers and Plymouth Soroptimists are joining forces to treat women who use the services of Shekinah to a pamper day to celebrate International Women’s Day which falls on 8 March this year.  The pamper session will be held on Monday 26 February at the Shekinah Mission, Bath Street, Plymouth .

The day-long event (10am-4pm) is designed to give a much needed boost to around 25 women who can have manicures, makeup, massages, makeovers and hair styling.  Fashion restyle adds another dimension to the day, with racks of donated clothes for the women to chose from.  Plymouth Soroptimists and staff from the Shekinah Mission will be on hand to offer lifestyle advice including preparing for job interviews.

Plymouth Soroptimists are providing lunch, refreshments and toiletries for the women to take away, whilst others are giving their time and expertise to the pamper day.
