Young Women at High Sheriff's Ladies Lunch

Last week the High Sheriff of Nottingham held a fundraising Ladies Lunch to raise money for Equation, the charity that run the Respect not Fear website.


As part of this fundraiser a group of young women aged 14 from Nottingham Academy in Sneinton attended and gave a presentation on what it is like to be part of one of Equation’s projects for young people


During the Ladies Lunch the young women got to meet and chat with a variety of women, including local business women, they developed their presentation skills and this helped to boost their confidence speaking to 150 women.


The young women were very proud to have been part of the project and explained to everyone what the project was all about.
