The programme includes occasional talks, coffee mornings, luncheons, receptions, concerts and other cross-cultural activities such as the Friendship/Cultural visits, all of which are designed to promote friendship and understanding between women of member countries or who are members of likeminded organisations. These events are held in a variety of interesting locations, from private homes, restaurants and clubs, to Embassies and High Commissions and funds raised go, primarily, to the Council’s support of Training Programmes (see Courses page).
Where the venue is not restrictive on numbers, events are opened more widely.
In the last few years The Women’s Council has joined other organisations with ties to the Commonwealth in sharing an annual event. For example, in 2016 we visited The Middle Temple. Since then we’ve enjoyed a river trip to Greenwich, including a visit to The Queens House, as well as a day in the City of London, visiting Guildhall, Pewterers’Hall and St Lawrence Jewry and visiting The Museum of The Bank of England followed by lunch in a nearby restaurant. The other object of these shared events is to be more aware of our respective aims and provide an opportunity to share ideas.
For more information about these and other events please contact our Events Organisers at : firstname.lastname@example.org
Members, friends and other supporters of The Women’s Council generously contribute their time and energy in raising funds to support our aims. Plants sales, coffee mornings and summer lunches are typical examples, but an outstanding gesture of support was Piaras Moore’s 1000 Mile Walk in 2018 which raised over £10,000.
During the Covid-19 ‘Lockdown’ The Women’s Council (TWC) formed a small team to create a E-Recipe Book. Urged on by one of our Honorary Vice Presidents, Rosina Dhala, and with the encouragement of contributors, we have raised funds to sponsor a special Training Course for women professionals working in the field of disability, supported by TWC for the last fifty years.
The Cook Book has since been printed and is available to buy. A poster advertising “The Way to Cook with The Women’s Council”can be seen and downloaded here.
We hope you will enjoy this exquisite collection of fine recipes from the kitchens of our wonderful supporters. There is a wide variety, coming from all over the world and from our Members, Friends and Patrons.
