International Women's Day

We're very excited to be hosting our own event this year for International Women's Day 2019, a day celebrated globally, honouring the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

On Wednesday 6th March, we will be joined by three successful business women for a talk and Q&A in The Scullery at Lime Wood! Each businesswoman will discuss the inspirations behind their businesses and what led them to get started, exploring the number of social enterprise companies which are now using their sales to do good.
