To celebrate International Women’s Day, Lewis-Manning Hospice is launching its Celebrating Women 2015 campaign with a Ladies Afternoon Tea event at the Harbour Heights Hotel in Sandbanks on March 6th at 3pm.
International Women’s Day takes place annually on March 8th with thousands of events held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements and this year its theme is ‘Make It Happen’. Lewis-Manning, which provides free care and support to local people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses, will be using the Women’s Afternoon Tea to unveil details of its third annual Celebrating Women Lunch, which will be taking place on Friday 2nd October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and will be calling upon women to “#make it happen”.
The Ladies Afternoon Tea will feature Gill Donnell MBE as Guest Speaker from Poundbury, Dorchester. Gill is an experienced leader, motivational speaker and executive coach, who has spent much of her working life promoting the role of women in the workplace and supporting individuals to achieve their full potential.
Gill is behind www.unlockyourdaughters.com which is committed to encouraging and empowering women to realise their true potential and offers support in a variety of ways. In 2009 Gill’s work on women’s development was recognised by Her Majesty the Queen with the award of an MBE.
Tickets for the event are £25 and can be bought from the Fundraising Team on 01202 701000. The price includes a traditional afternoon tea consisting of delicious cakes, pastries and sandwiches with hot beverages and will feature a raffle and auction, plus live entertainment from Alani String Quartet, a vibrant, young professional string quartet based in Bournemouth, Dorset
