Women Today listen again: Special 18th birthday celebrations, STEM bursary and instagram stories

On Women Today this afternoon we were joined by Jenna O'Sullivan who's holding a very special event in memory of her son Ben this weekend.

He would have been 18 this Friday, but sadly died at the age of two.  As there weren't the facilities over here at the time, Jenna had to take him to the Wirral for Hospice Care and that's why she campaigned for Rebecca House on the Island.  There is a corner there dedicated to Ben's memory, and Jenna is devoted to raising as much money as possible for them.

Her charity event is sold out, but if you would like to take part in the raffle or auction you can call her on 376727.

We also heard from Lucienne De La Mare who's the HR Director at Sure about the first ever bursary available for female students who want to do courses in science, technology, engineering or maths (STEM).  The closing date for applications is the end of February.  You need to send a CV and covering letter explaining why you want to apply to mailto:recruitment@sure.com

And Alison Teare from Simply Marketing joined us to talk about the latest developments in the world of social media, and told us why Instagram stories are the thing we all need to know about.
