For Women by Women - Wednesday 11th April
I'm really looking forward to a charity fundraising event which I have been invited to tomorrow evening. In aid of raising money for two cancer charities - Women V Cancer and Cancer Support Mallorca, the event is primarily being aimed at women, especially within the superyacht industry.
Astilleros shipyard in Palma de Mallorca is hosting the event, which is expected to welcome around 100 people this time, due to their limited space. The Inquisitive Crew team have mentioned that they will be planning other events during the year to continue with their fund raising efforts.
We want to bring together the women within our unique yachting industry to raise awareness and funds for Women v Cancer and Cancer Support Group Mallorca charities.
One of the Inquisitive Crew team, Faye Price, will be going the extra mile - in November this year she will cycle 450 km/260 miles from Agra to Jaipur in India. This wont be her first tour de force, having already cycled 320 km through the Middle East in 2009 from Beirut to Palestine, with 250 other women from 40 different countries. Along the way she had the opportunity to meet women from many different countries, including Queen Rania of Jordan and Syria's First Lady Asma al Assad, who cycled with them for part of the event
Cancer has sadly touched all our lives, in one way or another, we’re trying to help close the gap between the disease and the cure. Sadly, this has taken so many people away from us, some way too young.
This is my way of paying it forward.
Tomorrow's event will include a Mind & Body Zone offering free beauty treatments, such as a facial, to a consultation from a personal trainer. The fundraising evening will also host interior exhibitors from the superyacht industry in Palma de Mallorca. And of course I will be there showing off some of our fabulous designer jewellery, all of which contain magnets for health and wellness!
If you are in Palma and fancy coming along, there are still a few places left - you can register here.
