Day 6th March 2020

To mark International Women’s Day 2020, the female partners at Saint & Co turned their ‘out of office’ on and spent the day celebrating what it means to be a woman in the workplace.

A series of talks were held by women for women on various topics relating to the female experience.

Earlier in the day, Saint & Co invited a mix of female clients and professional friends to join them at Carlisle’s Lumber Lounge for an axe throwing session and lunch was then enjoyed at The Penny Blue, enabling guests to find out more about each other. Later in the day, the team also held a raffle and a game of stand-up bingo, all in all raising £500 for Carlisle Youth Zone.
