Lochaber Women’s Aid held a coffee morning on March 8 to mark International Women’s Day.

It was a case of cakes galore as more than 30 people got together at the coffee morning to celebrate the global event.

Lively chatter filled the air as staff and board members were joined by representatives from Inverlochy Primary School, Lochaber Housing Association, Lochaber Foodbank, McIntyre and Co, solicitors, Friends of Lochaber Women’s Aid and members of the public.

As well as being an opportunity to recognise the achievements of pioneering women in the past, attendees were asked to leave their fingerprints as their pledge to continue to work towards achieving a balance for better in advancing gender equality.

Liz Fotheringham, chairwoman of Lochaber Women’s Aid, said: ‘It was a really enjoyable morning. We welcomed a great mix of people who enjoyed some invigorating and interesting conversation.’
