Kyra - Womens Project
The aim of Kyra, Women's Project is to provide a safe women only inclusive environment where all women can receive support and advice to make decisions about their lives. This we believe will benefit not only the women but also their families and local community. We are an independent charity relying on fundraising and grant applications to deliver this service. We deliver courses on self-esteem and stress management as well as courses focusing on obtaining employment and money management. We also provide a range of creative activities, art, music, vegetable growing, cooking and craftwork to provide an environment where women are able to support each other and in turn work as Volunteers with Kyra Women’s- Project.

I'm Running 10 Miles for Kyra

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

I have challenged myself to run the Yorkshire 10 Miles on 8th October in Aid of The Kyra Womens’ Project.

Kyra is a Yorkshire based charity helping women overcome challenges and make positive changes in their lives.

I first went to Kyra in search of support in managing the long term after effects of domestic abuse and was blown away by the range of free activities, workshops, drop-in sessions and courses available for all women and especially for women dealing with struggles and difficulties in their lives.

The volunteers work really hard to make sure there’s a safe environment for members and do a fantastic job offering encouragement and a listening ear. There’s always a friendly face and the kettle is always on! I am so glad that I found them.

I think Kyra is a really important place not just for the women who go but for their families and loved ones and the wider community. As ever they rely on charitable donations to keep the centre and services running so I would like to raise as much money as I can to support them as they have supported me.

Also, I am running 10 miles (TEN MILES!!) I’m not a great runner, it’s going to hurt, please donate if you can.

Thank you xxx
