Benevolent Summer Lunch & Enterprise Gift Recipient

Members and their guests enjoyed the annual AWTE Summer lunch in support of the Benevolent at the Royal Garden Hotel on Thursday 27 June.
At this year’s lunch Tracy Sharp was awarded the 2019 ‘Benevolent Enterprise Gift’, recipients of the gift are able to spend the gift on training and activities to improve their professional skills in fields such as PR, media, marketing, as well as other areas of business development.
Benevolent Chair Aphrodite Burton said; ‘Today’s lunch is a firm favourite in the association’s calendar, and I’m delighted that we have 7 past AWTE Chairs plus our current Chair here supporting this event.  The Benevolent was established more than 50 years’ ago in memory of Gillyan Shebbeare who in 1967 left us a donation with the request to form a ‘Benevolent Fund’ and to continue raising money to help all AWTE UK members of all ages’ Aphrodite continued: ‘Much of our work is to support AWTE members in times of hardship and distress, but today we have been delighted to award Tracy our Enterprise Gift which she will use to further develop her new business website.’
We would also like to thank the lunch sponsors, Tricia Handley Hughes (Pinpoint), Nina Glass (Eric Salmon) and Lisa Henning (TTNG).
