#MRWomenToday listen again: Ethiopia trek, discrimination in workplace & noisy food in theatres

On the programme today:

- Kevin Christian came to see us to tell us all about his recent trek to Ethiopia, in which he was raising awareness and funds for the charity Care Epilepsy Ethiopia. If you would like to find out more about their work, or would even like to join Kevin on next year's trek, you can contact him on 07624 442118

- we also heard about a survey carried out for the charity “Young Women's Trust” has found that one in seven employers admit they'd be reluctant to hire a woman who might have children and were joined in the studio by Manx Radio's HR Executive Lisa Haworth, who has herself experienced such discrimination, and who told us what we can do to avoid it and how best to deal with it if we do encounter it; 

- we talked about the new Crafty Group that has 'popped up' in Onchan, giving us the chance to buy handmade locally produced arts and crafts from people like James Duggan, Yarny Grainne and Alice Rose Fayle to name a few, while also browsing the vintage clothing from Flamingo, eating festive treats from The Cookie Doe and having a five minute watercolour portrait by Kim Gee! You will find the Keird Collective in the Precinct Thurs to Sun this weekend and next - click here for all the details; 

- we asked how irritated you get by the sound of snack packaging, as one major London Theatre group has banned noisy crisps and sweets from their venues;

- and we heard the new single from the remarkable 9 year old Lula Brown, who has worked with Ruth Keggin, Matt Creer and Ballagroove Records to produce a new arrangement of Ellan Vannin, raising money for project GUSHGUSH with the aim of providing clean water for some of the poorest people in the world. To support Lula, you can buy the single here
