Elsie Maud Inglis, campaigner for women's and children's health, suffragist and founder of the Scottish Women's Hospitals during World War I, refused to obey when told by the War Office to 'go home... ' Money raised in Scotland sent her hospital units to the Eastern Front where they saved thousands of allied soldiers. Elsie's story shows what people can achieve when they do not just '... sit still'. Join us to hear more about this innovative woman from Liz McIntyre.

Tea and coffee will be provided.
