Description

We would like to invite you to our annual charity afternoon tea party supporting The Hunger Project on the 7th October 2017. This year our theme is Championing Adversity & The Hunger Project is a global, non-profit, strategic organization committed to the sustainable end of world hunger through women centred projects.

There is lots in store for you: we have speakers, spoken word artists, singers and even a mini fashion show! Relax as you mingle, chat, learn and make new friends whilst helping the noble cause of The Hunger Project.

These are confirmed speakers so far, they are strong women in their respective fields and we selected them because we felt that they can inspire, challenge and motivate us all to be strong women too:
