Girls Gone Sober: Halloween Meal (Saturday 28th October)
This is a sit down alcohol free meal where participants can chat and get to know people in the community.
Kinga (girlsgonesober Founder), founded the organisation in July earlier this year. In an interview, Kinga stated that ‘the aim was to create a safe, judgement free space for girls/women who are sober/sober curious and are looking to make friends and enjoy alcohol free events.’ This led to Kinga organising the first meal in October and a pottery painting event in November.
These events are open to anyone who identifies as female, however Kinga is looking to expand this to include others, or have specific events that are open to anyone in the future.
There are plenty of choices this Halloween, so get involved and raise money for charity whilst filling your buckets with delicious treats and help create positive change this Halloween.
