Girls Night-In (November)

In light of the impact of Covid-19 on our ability to socialise and DVCS fundraising events, we are encouraging you to spend the night at home with some of your girlfriends to help support DVCS.  We also want to provide an opportunity for people who missed out on tickets to our High Teas and Trivia Nights to get involved.
