Women Today listen again: IsleExpo, Bra Dashes and WW1 play
On Women Today this afternoon Beth and Kirree were joined by a host of guests talking about IsleExpo, the Island's bra dashes and a play commemorating the Isle of Man's involvement in World War One.
Angela Clucas and Leigh-Ann Moffat are both local entrepreneurs who have been supported by the Department of Enterprise's Microbusiness Scheme. It gives you all the help you need to set up and maintain your own company. They will both be speaking at IsleExpo in May about their own experiences. You can find the full programme of events here.
Since they started 14 years ago, the Island's Bra Dashes have raised over £190,000, and it's time to don your brassieres once again as they are being held at four locations next week. Angie Aire MBE and Lindsay Quayle from Breast Cancer Now came in, with very fetching bras, to explain how anyone and everyone can take part in this fun event. Find all the details on their website. We also spoke to Senior Research Communications Officer at Breast Cancer Now Kotryna Temcinaite about how money raised over here funds invaluable research.
And John Young joined the team to talk about 'For the Fallen', remembering those from the Island involved in the Great War which ended 100 years ago. John has written, with the help of some historic letters, a moving production focussed largely on those who were left behind. It's being performed by a community cast - some of whom have never been on stage before.
It's on at the Ballakermeen High School Studio Theatre and runs from April 24th - 28th inclusive. Only 80 tickets are available for each performance and you can buy them here.
Oh and we also discussed the mum who went on television to explain why she had a favourite child.
If you missed any of the show you can listen again for the next seven days. (Probably avoid the last five minutes...)
