As the country progresses to the brink of war, her love affair leads her to pit herself against a Russia heading towards winter and tests her belief in the man she loves.

Womankind Edinburgh Charity Crystal Ball

Womankind Beauty are honoured to present this with their co-host venue, Edinburgh Corn Exchange to celebrate their 15th year in business and raise money for two charities very close to their hearts, Maggies Centres and Simba

We are very grateful that Stockbridge Local have agreed to sponsor our event and will be there to capture the night. 

Womankind would be grateful to have as many clients, friends and family there and any donations or prizes would be greatly appreciated. 

Womankind have had a very traumatic 18 months in the salon with the loss of one of Patrycja’s (one of Womankind's team) husband to cancer leaving her to start life as a family of 3 with 2 young children. She has spoken so highly of Maggies and how supportive they are. They don’t just help the people with cancer but anyone who is affected by it. 

Tragically, an other member of staff, Tegan, lost her baby girl, Lottie, late on in pregnancy. Simba has been there all the way for Tegan and her husband and helped to provide special memories. Simba also fund rooms in the hospital for parents to spend time with their little angels. 

Womankind promise this is going to be a great night with live entertainment from Jools Holland’s Jam House resident band “The Black Beez”. These guys know how to party and are the chosen after party entertainment for the European Rugby Champions Cup final. 

Instapic Photo Booths will be joining us to have some fun. 

Radio's ‘Big Al’ will be hosting the event and presenting the charity auction with some amazing prizes in our grand raffle. 

Womankind hope to see you there.
