Ladies in Business, Shropshire was set up in 2006 and was the brainchild of four professional women looking to create a relaxed group in which women could network and build mutually beneficial relationships with like-minded women. Of the original team and sponsors who set LiB up, whilst two sponsors have changed, only one of the core ladies has changed and that was in year two. What dedication, achievement and support.
Meetings take place away from the workplace, giving you the chance to meet like minded women in professional positions, giving you the opportunity to make friends and feel less isolated in your work.
- All of our lunch meetings take place at Adcote School, Little Ness, Shrewsbury, SY4 2JY.
- Everyone is made to feel very welcome and enjoy a two-course lunch and listen to an inspirational speaker.
- Our lunches start at 12 midday and finish at 2.30 pm and the cost is £20.00.
In addition to our lunches we also have two Netwalks in May and September. Anyone who has been on our Netwalks before will tell you they are an excellent way of getting to know people.
Our walks begin at 9.30 am and include a two-course lunch with the day finishing at 2.30 pm. The cost of this event is £25.
Each year we select a charity to fundraise for at our lunches and this year we have chosen The Movement Centre.
The Movement Centre is a UK charity and specialist treatment centre. They are dedicated to supporting children and their families living with movement disabilities.
They work with children who have a disability, such as cerebral palsy, which affects their movement control. They do this by providing a specialist evidence-based therapy called “Targeted Training”. Targeted Training therapy can enable children to develop new skills and become far more independent. This can have a huge impact on their life. It can also make a big difference to the lives of their family and friends.
As a charity they need to raise vital funds every year in order to deliver their life-changing services to as many children as possible. In support of The Movement Centre we will be selling raffle tickets for £1 each at all our lunches this year. Please help us to fundraise for them by buying a raffle ticket, you can make a difference.
