About Us

Women in Wales is a registered charity with a committee that organise the Women in Wales annual Lunch.  The purpose of the charity is to fundraise at the Luncheon to support children’s charities and projects in Wales which are selected after application by the Trustees of the charity.

The generosity of 300 guests at the 2023 lunch resulted in the Women in Wales committee donating £30,000 to the following five very worthy projects – Ty Hafan, Dreams & Wishes, Pembrokeshire Food Story, Pembrokeshire Riding for the Disabled and Sandy Bear Bereavement Charity.  A donation was also made to the MPC charity. Quite an achievement for the committee who have organised this event since its inception and who remain proud and passionate about generating funds to support children’s projects in Wales.  

This lunch has gained the enviable reputation as being one not to be missed in both the business and social calendar in Wales.   It delivers high quality food and service, excellent entertainment, great company and networking and fantastic raffle and auction prizes. 

Each year it is attended by a mix of 400+ business professionals, charity volunteers and fundraisers, celebrities, family and friends all with the aim of raising money to provide help for children in Wales whilst enjoying a ‘glamorous’ event.

For the corporate market this is a real opportunity for the female owners, directors, managers and employees in the business to attend and to use the opportunity to entertain clients or staff.

Since its inception this lunch has raised more than £1m to change the lives of children and their families. The Women in Wales committee is proud of this achievement and with your support we aim to increase our donation each year.

The Trustees of the charity comprise of a team of dedicated professional women who work throughout the year to organise the lunch.  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 programme.
