  • Lauren Laverne, Caroline Flack, Caitlin Moran and Brix-Smith Start joined the celebrities out in force to launch Oxfam’s Get-Together Campaign

    Lauren Laverne, Caroline Flack, Caitlin Moran and Brix-Smith Start joined the celebrities out in force to launch Oxfam’s Get-Together Campaign.

    Oxfam are encouraging women to get together and hold their own fundraising events for International Women’s Day on the 8th of March.

    Speaking at the launch Caitlin Moran said: ‘The fact that we have an International Women’s Day shows how far we have come, and the fact that we still need one shows how much elbow room there still is.’

    A woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth every minute, but £46 raised through a Get-Together coffee morning could enable Oxfam to train a midwife in Ghana, saving the lives of babies and their mothers.

    Get-Together ambassador Lauren Laverne says: ‘This is the point when we have to galvanise everyone to do stuff for Oxfam. The theme of tonight and of the Get-Together campaign is lovely but it’s also helping – it’s win win!’

    She also revealed that she is planning a nocturnal make-over night, while Caroline Flack is planning a celebrity car boot sale. Now that’s one we we’d love to attend!
