Creations raise £1000 for Macmillan on the night too!
CONGRATULATIONS to all our wonderful winners who have been recognised for their successes and achievements at the Woman of the Year Awards 2014. Creations were thrilled to be the headline sponsors after attending last years awards and feeling totally inspired!
The glamorous occasion took place at Fontwell Park Racecourse and had many highlights. Creations owner, Carolyn Sweeney gave a speech about women in business and her personal struggles before finding her career path. She also paid tribute to Emma Shepherd who helped the salon raise more than £28,000 last year for charitable projects.
Dame Jenifer – Wilson from Macmillan helped more than 40 winners collect their winning hampers raising a massive £1000 for the cause. The raffle tickets were sold by the girls from Creations who had a surprise of their own – they were wearing wigs styled by the salons hair loss/cancer support wig service. – well done girls!
