Sad to be leaving Getaway Girls after a great couple of weeks. Have really enjoyed my placement and I’ve been able to meet some amazing people. My favourite part of the placement was being given the opportunity to design and draw a Getaway Girls Mural for the charity. Huge thanks to EVERYONE for looking after me and for making me feel so welcome. Getaway Girls is AWESOME!!

Hi my name is Florrie and excited to be doing my work experience here at Getaway Girls. I’m from a small village near Peterborough, we only have a couple of shops and the nearest shopping centre is an hour bus ride away so it’s really interesting to be living in Leeds for a couple of weeks J Everyone is really nice and friendly and there is so much stuff to do. I’m looking forward to doing some art work for the charity, meeting all of the girls that go to the Getaway Girls groups and getting to know people!

Hi everyone. It’s Kizzy, better known as the work experience placement. However, unlike my other blog post about work experience, we’re not here to talk about me today. We’re talking about our event on Saturday, March 11th: STAND UP FOR GIRLS LEEDS 2017. This event was about standing up for girls… the concept isn’t too complicated. It was about promoting girls’ thoughts on issues in Leeds. At the event, we started off with stalls. There was henna, a timeline activity about women’s rights, t-shirt design, Glitter tattoos and lots more. The venue, Broadcasting Place (better known as the Rusty Building)…

Hi everyone. I’m Kizzy and I’m currently on work experience placement with Getaway Girls. So far, my work has been very mixed. My activities have included visiting primary school groups, making goody bags for our event last Saturday, doing cooking with groups and sitting in on Conversation Club, a Getaway Girls Group. I also visited the Town Hall on Wednesday for International women’s day with the rest of my colleagues. This obviously gives a wider range of experience, which is why Getaway Girls is a fantastic choice of work placement. WOW, I sound boring. It was more interesting than it sounds…

Hi, this is the first blog post from the Getaway Girls Side-By-Side group.

Last year we took part in a creative writing project, Our Truth, which culminated in us publishing our work, and launching the book at a special event at the White Cloth Gallery. We found the writing to…

So now you know a little bit about what this blog is all about, we're sure you're all wondering who's behind the scenes running the show, you know, selecting the articles, making cups of tea, eating cake....*sighs* it's such hard work! Anyway enough about that….we thought you might want to know a little bit about who is actually behind the keyboard?  So here goes….. Rachel Hey, people of the world, I am that girl...Rachel. I'm a teenager living life, chilling out, sitting back and watching the world go by, as I think: maybe I should actually get up and do…
