Sue Ryder Women Of Achievement Awards 2017

On the 10th March at Trunkwell House near Reading, AVE Services provided the event production for Sue Ryder Duchess of kent at the southern women of achievement awards 2017 . The day started with a drinks receptions and light entertainment so everyone had the chance to mingle. The guests of all the nominees for the awards took their seats at their tables and gave all of the nominated women a standing ovation as they all entered the room together.

The day had many opportunities to donated to the charity with a raffle, auction and fun games. As the individual stories were told, many others wanted to donate to the personal challenges that they were doing to raise money. The whole day was inspiring and watching so many people come together to help each other was something that we don’t see enough.

The winners of the day were:

Well done to all the winners
