Champion of Women Awards 2018 returned for a second year after the success and compliments of 2017. This year the event raised more than £100,000 in support of cancer charity Maggie’s on Friday 5th October 2018. The celebrations took place in the Art Deco ballroom of The Sheraton Grand London Park Lane Hotel, Mayfair. The awards recognise the achievements and compassion of women who support their peers and younger generations.
The awards were founded by The Dovetail Agency’s Managing Director, Jayne Alexander, where the concept for the occasion began in 2017. Since, The Dovetail Team have presented two Champion of Women Awards both supporting the charity, Maggie’s whose work is exceptional in offering free practical and emotional support for all people living with cancer, their family and friends. Built in the grounds of specialist NHS cancer hospitals, Maggie’s Centres are warm and welcoming places, with qualified professionals on hand to offer a programme of support that has been shown to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
Our headline sponsor for 2018 was St. James’s Place Wealth Management, with our awards presenters by Andrea McLean, co-presenter of ITV’s Loose Women and author of new book Confessions of a Menopausal Woman; comedian and actor Brian Conley, star of new West End show 9 to 5 at the Savoy Theatre; and Georgia Toffolo, ambassador for Maggie’s, alumni of Made in Chelsea and winner of I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here 2017.
The awards lunch presented a fun filled atmosphere of entertainment from Just The Tonic, Incognito and a dance performance from Simply Dancing Partners. The awards excelled with live music and entertainment, a pop-up luxury beauty hall and a silent auction with a vast collection of deluxe gifts. The lunch changed into an evening occasion with an after-party that extended the ballroom into the bar area with live music and pop-up bars.
The after-party welcomed partners and friends from 4pm, with the House of Elrik Gin Bar, Black Cow Vodka Bar, Sekforde Mixers, Red Pepper Beer and DJs Bittersweet accompanied by live saxophonist Stacey Doherty.
The Dovetail Team were delighted with the achievement of the 2018 awards and we look forward to creating the occasion to celebrate women in the near future.
