Women of the Year Lunch - Monday 11th October
I was honoured to be invited to the Women of the Year Lunch. Roz Morris generously nominated me and here we both are - note the slight lack of focus was the result of indoor lighting, it had nothing to do with the excellence of the lunch!
So many of those attending had done amazing things in the sphere of charitable work or what could now perhaps be called "Big Society" volunteering. It made me feel very humble by comparison.
The event was hosted by the wonderful Sandi Toksvig - a pocket battleship of humour and good cheer - and while celebrating the successes of women, the tone was determinedly NOT anti-man. Thank goodness.
