Happy 5th Birthday English for Women!

The project that started with a smile in 2015, is celebrating its 5th birthday with a fundraising appeal to ensure English for Women can continue to provide life-changing support, learning and connections beyond the current pandemic. The fundraiser will run throughout 2021 and all donations, big or small, will make a huge difference.  Can you give £5, or whatever you can afford, for our 5th birthday?

This is the difference your donation could make:


contributes to the cost of refreshments. Breaks provide opportunity for connection


helps to ensure the safe and welcoming environment which is central to the EfW ethos


allows EfW to provide straightforward, learner-focused resources


helps EfW open new projects with the aim of reducing isolation in more areas

We are so grateful for the generosity of individual donors who enable us to continue combating isolation within our local communities. If you would like to make a donation, simply click the link on our fundraiser.
