A fun and inspiring evening at the Met Bar

Members and guests enjoyed an evening at the CWN Summer Drinks networking and fundraising event in the elegant Metropolitan Hotel.  Delicious canapés and lychee cocktails were on hand to sustain everyone throughout the evening and there was a raffle with some fantastic prizes, to raise money for our chosen charity.

Making a difference to women in need

Thanks to the generosity of those attending we raised £1,400 for CWN’s Charity of the Year, Working Chance.The money raised will make a real difference to Working Chance, which supports women with criminal convictions and women care leavers to find quality work with mainstream employers.

Erica Handling, GC of Blackrock and Trustee of Working Chance spoke movingly about the work of the charity and gave some insight into the impact that it has on women who need it the most.


We also welcomed Jody Shield, who came to speak on the topics of well-being and meditation, important topics at a time when life seems to be becoming increasingly hectic.

Finally we heard from Corina Yap, the spa manager at the Metropolitan Hotel on the importance of looking after oneself, and we ended the evening with a fantastic prize draw of a weekend for two with a spa treatment at the hotel.

We would like to thank all those who attended and we are looking forward seeing you at one of our future events.
