On Saturday, September 16th, we brought our EndoSocial event to the vibrant city of Manchester, and let us tell you, it was a day to remember! 💫
This gathering was so much more than just an event. It was a heartfelt coming together of individuals who intimately understand the challenges faced by those living with Endometriosis. The day was filled with activities that not only fostered connections but also empowered and educated all who attended.

Our lovely guests were welcomed with open arms and delicious snacks, setting the tone for an atmosphere of warmth and comfort. But that was just the beginning.
One of the standout moments of the day was our specialist Q&A session, and we were honoured to have our Ambassador and panellist, the incredible Beth Dunlavey, alongside her partner Connagh Howard, who has been a tireless advocate for Endometriosis awareness.

The event also featured a drawing mindfulness activity held by artist - Charlotte Boundy, providing a creating outlet for our guests to express their emotions and activities.
But that's not all. We were also fortunate to have Lina Chan, the visionary founder of Holland and Barrett's women's wellness brand, Parla, join us. Psychologist Dr. Sula Windgassen, and Consultant Colorectal Dietitian Sophie Medlin were also present to lend their expertise to the conversation. Our guests had the incredible opportunity to ask burning questions about Endometriosis to these esteemed experts in the field.
This open and honest dialogue not only provided answers but also helped break down the lingering stigma surrounding this condition. It was a day of empowerment, education, and, most importantly, connection.
