Through City Living, Local Life the Earl’s Court Councillors have helped local organisation An-Nisa Women’s Empowerment Group to mark the contribution of women to society.

An-Nisa, named in reference to the Arabic word for ‘the women’, is a community group that has been running for three years providing women living in the Earl’s Court area from all backgrounds and cultures a place to come together, make new friends and learn more about Kensington and Chelsea.

The celebration brought together forty local ladies to honour the volunteers who have devoted hundreds of hours to make the supplementary school and coffee mornings held by the group a success. As well as enjoying a buffet of homemade dishes from the countries represented by the women attending, there was the chance to learn more about wellbeing and have a health MOT.

It wasn’t just a dish people were encouraged to bring –  the event was a kaleidoscope of colours that included traditional dress from Jamaica, India, Chile and beyond.

If you would like to find out more about the work of An-Nisa you can visit their Tuesday coffee mornings from 9:15am – 11:30am at Response Community Projects, 300 Old Brompton Road, SW5 9JF. Alternatively, you can get in touch via email at or telephone 07957451667
