MORE than 200 people attended an event in Keighley to celebrate International Women’s Day.

A host of organisations was represented at Saturday’s gathering, at the civic centre.

“It went really well,” said organiser Diane Law, community development worker at Highfield Community Centre.

“The event was open to everyone and we had good representation from the diverse communities of Keighley, including both male and female attendees.”

There was a wide range of information stalls and activities based around this year’s International Women’s Day campaign theme, #BalanceforBetter.

Groups present included Highfield Community Association, Roshni Ghar, Shipley & Keighley Family Hub, E5 and Freedom4girls.

There was entertainment from Charlies Angels, of Charlies School of Dance.

Among the guests were the Lord Mayor of Bradford Councillor Zafar Ali, MP John Grogan, Keighley deputy mayor Cllr Peter Corkindale and other councillors.

Thanks were expressed to Bradford Council and Keighley Town Council, which sponsored the event.

The International Women’s Day theme was focused around forging a more gender-balanced world and tackling inequality.
