Cheshire Life is once again proud to support the region's most prestigious women's awards event at the Midland Hotel in May
It started as a small fundraising lunch a long time ago and is now a glamorous annual event at Manchester’s most iconic hotel. Last year it celebrated 25 years and the Inspiring Women Awards continues to acknowledge the achievements of women in the North West and North Wales.
Nominations are now open to recognise women in the areas of business, community, entrepreneurs and those aged between 16-25 years, for the Inspiring Young Women Award.
This year, founder Jacqueline Hughes-Lundy is introducing two new awards; the 100 Award and the Constance Award, in honour of her late mother. In acknowledging the centennial celebrations of women being allowed to vote and sit as MPs, she is looking for nominations for that man or woman who has helped to advance the role of women in society. This may be through politics, education, business, volunteering or by example. In 2017, the awards recognised the first Inspiring Man, Cllr Andrew Simcock for his work in bringing a statue of Emmeline Pankhurst to Manchester, a woman voted the all-time most influential figure of the region.
The Constance Award, sponsored by Cheshire Life and Lancashire Life is not open for nomination but will be selected from all nominations received. It is to recognise those women who alter the lives of others in a quiet and steadfast way.
Nominations for the 2018 Inspiring Women awards, sponsored by UCLAN, close on 31.03.2018. Finalists will be interviewed at the Awards lunch on May 11th 2018, by Sky presenter, Angela Powers. Winners announced by celebrity guests and Patchwork Pate founder, Margaret Carter, who has her own inspiring business story.
