U&I and Gemmedia support Target Ovarian Cancer at Women's Event in June
On Saturday 24th June, we are collaborating with GEMMEDIA for a Unique Women's Event, Diamonds & Deals.The event will be held at Villandry St James's, London, and is in aid of Target Ovarian Cancer. We will be donating a percentage of our ticket sales to the charity, as well as providing guests with an opportunity to raise some funds on the day, too. We have chosen to support Target Ovarian Cancer, because after all, what better way to share knowledge and facts about a women's illness, than at an event which is going to be full of women?
Diamonds & Deals is a Unique event, created especially for ambitious females to hear the success stories behind a variety of female entrepreneurs. The event welcomes University students, start-up girl bosses, established female entrepreneurs, and women looking to get into the business world.
We chose to team up with Target Ovarian Cancer, because not only is it a fantastic charity which we have chosen to support over the last few years, but it also adds a new and informative element to our event, which we hope can help those women who are attending.
It has been made clear to both myself and Gemma (of Gemmedia), that ovarian cancer is something that is not discussed enough. The symptoms that relate to the disease are symptoms that many women, particularly of our age (in our late twenties), do not know about. We decided that if we could help spread awareness of these symptoms, and encourage women to talk about their worries, then that's exactly what we would do, and that is why we are welcoming speakers from Target Ovarian Cancer to share their knowledge at Diamonds and Deals.
Ovarian Cancer kills 11 women every single day in the UK, and survival rates in the UK are among the worst in Europe, but thanks to Target Ovarian Cancer, there is hope. As the UK's leading ovarian cancer charity, the support that they receive from people just like us allows them to work to improve early diagnosis, fund life saving research, and provide much needed support to women who are suffering. If you would like to get involved with some fundraising yourself, why not head over to their website and get some inspiration? The charity have lots of exciting ways to raise funds, and the more people that can hear about it, the better.
We would love to see as many of you at our event as possible! Not only will it be a fun and exciting day, filled with the stories of successful and motivating women, but it's just an opportunity for us girls to get together and feel the support and love from one another... something that doesn't happen enough!
