International Women’s Day 2023

Thank you to everyone who attended our lunch on Wednesday 8th March to celebrate International Women’s Day at Careys Manor Hotel and Spa, we are delighted to say it was a huge success!

We would like to say a special thanks to our speakers, Donna Jones, Rebecca Leppard, Carla Whitbread and Catherine Hopkinson for taking the time to share their thoughts – and for giving us all food for thought…

We are delighted to announce that the event has so far raised £1200 for Força – Strength Against Cancer. Carrie Bugg, our wonderful photographer, has uploaded the photos from the day to her website which can be viewed here. Should you wish to purchase any of the images, these can be downloaded for £5 each, with all proceeds going to the charity.

The event would not have been possible without the support of Careys Manor Hotel and all of the generous local businesses that donated to the raffle and contributed to the event: New Forest Shortbread, Mann’s Cookies, New Forest Aromatics, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Floral Fleurtations, Best Garage, Francesco Group, New Forest Activities, Orchids Retreat, The New Forest Hamper Company, Astrid Davies Consulting, Cyclexperience, SL Beauty and Revive Hair & Beauty. Thank you!
