More than 160 women from Nottingham’s business and professional services sector attended Deloitte Charity Ladies’ Lunch and gave me a wonderful reception.
"Anna is an inspirational woman and proved to be a fitting speaker for the lunch. It was also quite timely that she was speaking a week ahead of the 500 day countdown to the Paralympic Games”

The event raised £4,300 for Maggie's charity, to be used to help fund the construction of Maggie’s new specialist cancer centre, due for completion later this year.
Maggie’s unique centres are located on hospital grounds to provide practical, emotional and psychological support to anyone affected by cancer.
Alan from Fife said:
“Maggie’s takes the loneliness out of cancer – its about learning to live in the moment,”
A wonderfully positive message we can all aspire to - and with that in mind, I shall practice some yoga.
