The 8th March 2021 was International Women’s day. This year we asked our followers to send us their selfies striking the ‘Choose To Challenge’ pose. We had a lot of lovely people show their support and solidarity! Search for the hashtags #ChooseToChallenge #IWD2021 to see them all. Scroll below to see a few we posted on our own social media channels. Thank you to everyone who took part in our online event!
