News - woman of the week
Platform 51 is delighted to announce Aung San Suu Kyi as our woman of the week. She has been a leading force in political activism in Burma for the past 22 years and this month marks the one year anniversary of her release from 15 years of house arrest.
Platform 51 is honoured to present India Gary-Martin as woman of the week. India is the President of City Woman's Network (CWN). Platform 51 were awarded the title of the CWN's Charity of the Year earlier this year. We are very grateful to India for awarding us this title and for helping us to raise nearly £15,000 at the CWN gala dinner last week.
