Join us on Sunday 18th March 2018 for the 18th annual Woman of Influence Awards at The Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow. This is a fabulous afternoon of great food, entertainment and most importantly to recognise outstanding woman in Scotland, all whilst raising vital funds for Action for Children Scotland.
The Woman of Influence Awards, exists to encourage, support and recognise influential women in Scotland. These women are from many arenas including media, entertainment, business, politics, public service and the community – the common thread is that they have all made an outstanding contribution to our society.
We are delighted to have Jennifer Reoch, STV2 presenter and former Miss Scotland to be hosting this years annual awards.
In 2017 our Woman of Influence was Judy Murray OBE. We were lucky to catch up with Judy after the awards and she said:
“Action for Children’s ‘Woman of Influence’ lunch is a fantastic annual event celebrating the impact that women make in Scotland. more importantly, it has raised an amazing £1.1m to support the work of action for children across Scotland since it started back in 2000. I was a guest at the 2017 event and thrilled to be the recipient of the women of influence award.
“Each and every day, this remarkable charity strives to improve the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged children the length and breadth of Scotland and it was fascinating to find out even more about the innovative work it undertakes.
“One of the most moving parts of the day was seeing an incredible teenager from an action for children service being recognised for overcoming adversity. Frida skinner, the young person celebrated last year was an absolute joy to listen to, a wonderful advocate of the charity’s work and an inspiration to other young women supported by the charity.”
