About the awards

The annual Awards celebrate individuals making a positive impact within their communities, whatever the context. We don’t use the term ‘Winners’ in our Awards as we recognise that behind every woman or girl making a positive impact to her community is a tribe of people supporting her in different ways, and the Award is the product of a whole tribe. As well as raising money for Endometriosis South Coast, our pre award event Ubuntu Afternoon Tea Party hosted at the Queens Hotel celebrates all people nominated for the awards.

A showreel of the sold out 2023 event hosted at The Guildhall is available on this page.
