Merle’s 50th anniversary and the month of women at the Regatta Hotel

In March this year, the Regatta celebrated the 50th anniversary of Merle Thornton’s famous protest at the Regatta Hotel and International Women’s Day with a Grand Ladies Luncheon on March 27th.   The Grand Ladies Luncheon was opened by Merle herself who spoke about her protest against the oppression of women which included a ban on drinking in public at the Regatta Hotel on March 31st, 1965.

The foundation has teamed up with Regatta Hotel to send a wakeup call to all men, get them to make a date with their doctor and seek medical attention for any health concerns. “As a foundation we provide vital funding to research projects ...
