Awards support charities

The 30th annual Midlands Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards will benefit three local charities.

Since it was established, the event has rasied £500,000 for good causes and this year they will be supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK, Vitalise and The Marie Curie Big Build Project.

Zalena Vandrewala who specialises in commercial litigation at Freeth Cartwright Solicitors in Stoke-on-Trent and is director of the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards said: “Our 30th anniversary bash will honour women in the Midlands, recognising their personal achievements and success in business. We are very proud to have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity during that time.”

“The event will play host to up to 600 women and, as well as an excellent lunch, they will have a chance to do some early Christmas shopping from a range of luxury boutique stalls, enjoy live music and dazzling dance performances plus a stunning fashion show courtesy of Stick and Ribbon.”

Guests at the 5th October event will also hear from keynote speaker, fashion designer and entrepreneur Karen Millen.

Director of development at Alzheimer’s Research UK, Dr Marie Janson, said: “We are thrilled to be one of the three charities selected to benefit from the Women Of The Year Luncheon And Awards. Every £20 donated towards our work will pay for another vital hour of pioneering research, bringing us closer to finding ways to diagnose, prevent, treat and cure Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.”
