Inspirational Awards for Women

The GR team attended the Inspirational Awards for Women on Friday 7th October at Cadogan Hall in Chelsea, London. And what a night it was! Not a dry eye in the house...

The awards were hosted by former GMTV presenter Andrew Castle and Sky News anchor Sarah-Jane Mee, celebrating women from diverse backgrounds who have inspired the nation. As well as projecting positive images of women and acknowledging those who are good role models, the event raises money and the profile of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The Most Inspirational, won by Alice Pynes for her continuing work in encouraging more people to join the bone marrow registers around the globe. The 15-year-old published an online “bucket list” of dying wishes after a four-year battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Alice looked stunned as she made her way to the stage to be presented with her trophy by QPR striker Jay Boothroyd. Her sister Milly won Most Inspirational Fundraiser for her charity work. The 12-year-old has raised over £100,000 for charity, mainly Great Ormond Street Hospital, where she has been a patient since birth.

Alice and Milly Pynes beat all the nominees in their respective categories of the Inspiration Awards for Women for their charity and awareness-raising work. Awards founder Skylet Andrew later took to the stage to announce he had a special inspiration award for the whole Pynes family.

Our very own Sharon Good presented Inspiration, Aspirational and Stylish award with the stunning Zoe Hobbs to winner Kate Winslet

Annie Lennox attended to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award for her dedication to fighting Aids and human equality.
