About us

Women in Wales is a registered charity with a committee that organises the Women in Wales annual Luncheon.

The first luncheon was held in 1992 and in 2017 the 25th annual luncheon will be held, quite an achievement for a voluntary committee. Over the past 24 years the event has raised more than £800,000 which has been donated to Save the Children projects in both Wales and oversees.

The luncheon continues to grow and is now attended by more than 400 women every year. The Trustees of the charity comprises of a team of dedicated professional women who work throughout the year to organise the luncheon. This not only involves the fundraising activities on the day itself but also securing support from corporate organisations who sponsor the event or advertise in the event programme.

The profit raised at the 2017 Luncheon will be donated to Save the Children to help to fund projects in Wales such as Eat, Sleep, Learn, Play – a grant programme designed to support children and families in the most desperate need and Families and Schools Together – an award-winning parental engagement programme.
