International Women's Day

On Women’s International Day, Youmanity commemorates and celebrates the life of extraordinary women!


One such extraordinary person is Peggy Maskrey who dedicated her life helping others in need.


For the last 81 years Peggy,  who is 97 years old, has been handing out food and clothes at Charles Thompson's Mission, Birkenhead.

"When I was 16 I volunteered and I've been a volunteer ever since," she said upon receiving her MBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace on 8th March.


"I do two days a week, Wednesday and Friday," said Peggy with a beautiful smile.


Many congratulations to Peggy from all of us at Youmanity!
