Team Menoteers’s story

How do you plan to spend your Saturday morning on 8th December? 

Maybe a stroll into town, a relaxing coffee with friends or a trip to the gallery?

For a hardy band of souls in Perth, there is nothing we would rather be doing than running around Perth City dressed in Santa suits complete with white beards, hats and the obligatory fairy lights. There may even be tiny bells a-jingling!

No, we are not mad. Okay, maybe just ever so slightly. But what we are is a dedicated group of 5 women, 1 man and his dog, aiming to raise funds to help the Menopause Café charity to host the world's only Menopause Festival and to support Menopause Cafes worldwide.

Until a few weeks ago, very few of us had actually run anywhere, for any distance, save perhaps to catch a bus. However, there's a lot to be said for the lure of a mince pie at the finish line, and yes, we admit it, the thrill of a shiny medal. 

We may not be able to give Paula Radcliffe a run for her money but what we lack in speed we more than make up for in grit and determination. Hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and brain fog will not stop us, neither will a brush with cellulitis, bruised toes or the odd arthritic hip.

Please do come along, encourage us, wave at us or give us a high-five. And, if you feel able, maybe make a wee donation to our cause. You'll make a band of bearded menopausal women, plus one man and his dog, very happy. How often can you say that?!

Merry Christmas!

Menopause Cafe

Purpose

At a Menopause Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss menopause.


Our objective is:

to increase awareness of the impact of the menopause on those experiencing it, their friends, colleagues and families, so that we can make conscious choices about this third stage of life


A Menopause Cafe is a group directed discussion of menopause with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a support or counselling session. We usually split into small groups and you are welcome to just listen, although we hope you will join in on discussions.


Menopause Cafés are offered:

  • On a not for profit basis
  • In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
  • With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
  • Alongside refreshing drinks and cake!

Who is it for?

Anybody interested in sharing their stories, experiences and questions about menopause. All genders and all ages. Men and women and inbetween. Old and young and inbetween.


We also run the world's only Menopause Festival, including speakers, comedy, film and workshops.


Menopause Cafe is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation SC048435.

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
