A Humber Mouth Special Commission The Bransholme Women's Centre presents:

Over the past three months a group of women from the Bransholme Women's Centre have been working with York based poet Margaret Speak to produce a collection of poems and stories. The women met through a support group at the centre which exists to discuss and recognise potential triggers of panic and anxiety. Rollercoaster explores the emotions caused by attacks of panic and anxiety as faced by some of the contributors on a daily basis.

The Bransholme Women's Centre provides a safe place for women and children to meet, offering a range of activities from education and training to counselling and support.

For more information on this special commission please contact Diane Graham at the Bransholme Women's Centre (01482) 828755
