MHP will be hosting a fundraising night of food, music, shopping and more on March 23, from 6pm, at the Lion Quays Hotel and Spa, Gobowen.

The event will raise funds for MHP, as well as Dr Barbara Guinn in University of Hull's research study that is getting great results with the urine dip test they have created to diagnose endometriosis, which would cut diagnosis time massively. Currently patients are waiting on average of nine years for diagnosis in Wales.

MHP founders Anna and Gabz said: "Historically we have not spoken about conditions like endometriosis through fear of judgement or shame.

"As a charity, we work towards reducing stigma by educating people about these conditions but also empowering others to advocate for themselves in order to access the correct care. We hope you can attend."
