Description

Hope and Voice CIC is pleased to announce its second biennial ‘Lioness Awards for Women 2019’. ‘The Lioness Awards for Women’ which was set up to recognise individuals and organisations who have worked exceptionally hard and made an outstanding contribution in their personal growth and to the development of the community - women from all works of life, women entrepreneurs, women in leadership roles, politics, women who have stepped out of their comfort zones to made a difference or have overcome challenging life situations against all odds.

The lioness as the name signifies is fierce by its name, it presence and its activities. No longer should we become complacent but to rise up and be all that we have been called to be.

The awards ceremony will be held on Saturday 28th September at the Hallmark Hotel in Croydon, starting at 6pm -11:30pm. Originally built in 1928 to serve the airport, the Hallmark Hotel London Croydon Aerodrome has a well-loved heritage in Surrey. It has a stunning lobby, stylish lounge bar and the Hallmark Grill offers plenty of places to relax and unwind.

​The evening will be an excellent opportunity to meet a wide range of people from different backgrounds, but with a common ethic of hard work and determination. It will be delightful setting for networking, raising your own profile, celebrating success and a chance to highlight your own business.

The cost of the ticket covers a three course meal, entertainment and fundraising. A book launch will also be taking place during the awards ceremony so come prepared.

Since 2006 Jennie has been based in London working with professional performing artists and educators specialising in a range of genres to produce live events and arts education projects delivered at nationally and internationally recognised venues across the UK including Southbank Centre, the Barbican, Kings Place, Turner Sims in Southampton and Town Hall & Symphony Hall Birmingham. Her experience includes Tomorrow’s Warriors where she played a leading role in launching and managing their jazz education residency at Southbank Centre, before taking on senior fundraising roles at the National Centre for Circus Arts and Green Man Festival (Wales’ largest contemporary music festival).

Abram and Jennie married the day before he passed away on 8th June 2012.
