Leeway Domestic Violence & Abuse Services invites artists and venues to participate in the White Ribbon Windows Campaign

Last November when walking through the Norwich Lanes you may have noticed bright wooden ribbons displayed in the windows of many shops, pubs, barbers and theatres. The Ribbons were part of the city-wide White Ribbon Windows campaign.  Leeway in partnership with Norwich City Council is going to bring it back this year bigger and better.

What is White Ribbon Window campaign?
White Ribbon is an international symbol of the movement aiming “to end male violence against women, once and for all.” Since 1989, the ‘White Ribbon’ has been a symbol of unity for all the people who commit to prevent and fully eliminate all the forms of violence against women including, domestic abuse.  Here in Norwich we’ve decided to incorporate this amazing symbol of hope and change to create a unique community project bringing together local artists, businesses and the general public.

In 2017, 18 artists created 21 outstanding designs for wooden White Ribbons which then were displayed in the windows of 18 popular local city centre venues. Each of the Ribbons represented their author’s emotions and feelings on such issues as domestic abuse, freedom and finding your inner strength. Below you can see some of the last year’s photos. This year we plan a variety of events as a part of the campaign, with the culmination – a week of window display during the week from November 19 until November 25. The choice of these dates is not a coincidence, as 25 November commemorates International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women and Girls.

Who can participate?
For all the artists and businesses who are interested in becoming the part of the White Ribbon Windows campaign: please, get in touch with us by email: fundraising@leewaynwa.org.uk or by phone: 0300 561 0077 (option 4).

SC News: BBQ and vodka night tonite! Super Sausages!

Norfolk Council News Feed - Fri, 06/22/2018 - 07:30

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

Social Club News - 21st June - see you tonight :-)

Tonight is BBQ Night - also with premium vodkas available  - Friday 22nd June, from 4.30pm, food available from 5pm

The weather forecast is looking rather good and we're getting ready for our world cup BBQ and vodka night. Thanks to those that pre-ordered. If you didn't you will still be able to grab a quality burger, a premium sausage (original, honey roast, Cajun or pork and leek) , a veggie kebab or a halloumi kebab for £2.50. (But you won't be able to get the £6 deal with 2 vodkas thrown in). As ever, all food subject to availability (although we will ensure that pre-orders are honoured, of course).

The premium vodkas are all 40% and are:

Chase Marmalade Vodka – Infused with Seville orange fine marmalade and marinated with Seville orange peel.

Stolichnaya – ‘Alpha Grade’ spirit distilled just 3 times to preserve its gentle, grainy character. The spirit then undergoes 4 filtrations through quartz sand and birch wood charcoal to acquire its unsurpassed smoothness.

Blackwoods Premium Vodka – Infused with handpicked Shetland botanicals this vodka is 5 times distilled to give an exceptionally smooth spirit.

Ghost Vodka – Ultra- premium vodka with hints of caramel, Ghost’s finish is so smooth it’s almost intangible, much like the breeze of a ghost passing by in the night. One of the purest and most refined vodkas you will find.

Chapel Down Vodka – Made from distilled chardonnay grapes with light citrus and floral aromas and a hint of aniseed on the finish.

Grey Goose – Distilled from French wheat and made with spring water filtered through limestone. A vodka of exceptional taste.

Please note mixers will be sold separately and vary from a dash of coke (40p) to premium tonics (£1.60) and anything in between. All vodkas subject to availability and please note pre-order tickets are non-refundable.

FEELING LUCKY? BUY A RAFFLE TICKET!!

We have a Summer Raffle going on at the moment - 50p a strip and you could win biscuits, chocolate, beer, wine, cider and so on. Pop up to the club and buy your tickets at the bar.

England v Belgium - Thursday June 28th Hot food available.

We'll be open from 5pm, and kick-off will be 7pm. Following some great feedback on the quality of our pies and by popular demand  we will have sausage OR PIE and chips available for £3 - but you will need to order before kick-off and food will be served at half time. (We'll also be bringing back the popular chicken balti pies as well). And we'll have out usual 4 pints for the price of 3 promotion if you order before 7pm. Come and support England with your colleagues and family, and (hopefully) see us through to the next round. Please note all food is available on a first come first served basis. Capacity (especially for pies) is limited.

BIG QUIZ - Friday 29th June - 8pm start  (and a few sarnies/nibbles)

We will try to do chips before the big quiz for the foreseeable future, based on the modest success of last time. However, as the people doing the quiz are the people who would cook the chips, we won't be doing chips on this occasion. Instead we'll have a small selection of filled rolls and so on to help keep the mice away.  Our big quizzes are always popular, cost £1 per person to enter (maximum teams of 6) and offer a full evenings quizzing. With our super value bar it really is a cracking evening for £1 per person. If you haven't been to one before, why not pop along and say hello.

England v Belgium - Thursday June 28th Hot food available.

We'll be open from 5pm, and kick-off will be 7pm. We'll have sausage and chips available for £3 - but you will need to order before kick-off and food will be served at half time. And we'll have out usual 4 pints for the price of 3 promotion if you order before 7pm. Come and support England with your colleagues and family, and (hopefully) see us through to the next round.

BIG QUIZ - Friday 29th June - 8pm start  (and a few sarnies/nibbles)

We will try to do chips before the big quiz for the foreseeable future, based on the modest success of last time. However, as the people doing the quiz are the people who would cook the chips, we won't be doing chips on this occasion. Instead we'll have a small selection of filled rolls and so on to help keep the mice away.  Our big quizzes are always popular, cost £1 per person to enter (maximum teams of 6) and offer a full evenings quizzing. With our super value bar it really is a cracking evening for £1 per person. If you haven't been to one before, why not pop along and say hello.

Social Club News - 18th June 2018 - hot food tonight v Tunisia

DON'T FORGET to pre-order for this Fridays Vodka night and BBQ - its a bargain (more details further down this email)

England v Tunisia - Mon 18th June Hot food available.  TONIGHT!!

We'll open from 5.30 for the England v Tunisia game, and will be taking orders for food before kick-off, food to be served at half time. Pie and chips, or sausage and chips for the bargain price of £3. Please note you must order before kick-off. And there's more... we'll be doing our 4 pints the price of 3 deal if you order a jug of beer before 7pm - why not share a jug with colleagues and friends?

AVON CALLING - Lunchtime 12-2 on Wednesday 20th June. We'll be having an Avon sale at lunchtime. Why not pop up to the club and grab yourself a bargain. There will be a wide range of great value items for sale.

PRE-ORDER NOW TO SAVE MONEY!! VODKA NIGHT and world cup BBQ - Friday 22nd June, from 4.30pm

 Ok - so we may have used a silly picture of a pig in a russian hat, but there's nothing silly about our vodka night and BBQ. We'll be having a very special selection of premium vodkas at very sensible prices. Stoli, ghost vodka (a British vodka that claims to be the purest), and plenty more... We'll have at least 6 varieties - watch this space.  you will be impressed. And we'll be having a BBQ with quality burgers, hotdogs, halloumi kebabs and veggie kebabs rather generously priced at £2.50 a go. And if that doesn't entice you, we have a cracking deal. Pre-order by Wednesday 20th June and you will get 2 premium vodkas and one item of food for £6. This helps us gauge demand, helps avoid wasted food, and also helps us hedge our bets weatherwise. (The pre-order tickets are non-refundable). Please note the £6 doesn't include mixers - mainly because there's such a wide variety it was impossible to come up with a simple easy pricing structure that covered all the options.

FEELING LUCKY? BUY A RAFFLE TICKET!!

We have a Summer Raffle going on at the moment - 50p a strip and you could win biscuits, chocolate, beer, wine, cider and so on. Pop up to the club and buy your tickets at the bar.
