With a huge amount of activity going on for International Women’s Day 2019, here’s our pick of some of the fundraising that has caught our eye.
.@Herring1967 is creating a Twitter storm: almost £50,000 raised already, more than 3,000 donations and both Refuge and Richard Herring are trending! So exciting! Can we break the internet this #IWD2019? https://t.co/CaZ1mr0Kcn pic.twitter.com/QlRlKwfpmt
— Refuge (@RefugeCharity) March 8, 2019
Comedian Richard Herring is helping to raise funds for Refuge by answering anyone who asks when International Men’s Day is – which is 19 November by the way – and encouraging people to donate, with the aim of raising at least £100,000. By 2pm, over £70,000 had already been donated.

Camden Town Brewery is raising money for the Fawcett Society. It has teamed up with Camden Town Football Club to create a new kit for them featuring four inspirational women of Camden including Sylvia Plath and Dame Barbara Hepworth. The kit was created by the brewery’s design collaborator of the year, Bodil Jane. The limited edition shirts will be available from its Camden Brewery Bar later this month, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity and
this week at the bar, it is donating all beer profits to the charity too.
