Creating a Women's Social club!

Creating a Women's Social club!

Lou Nylander By Lou Nylander

Hi there, I would like to start a Women's Social club in the Hither Green/Lewisham area called 'Wildflowers of Lewisham'.

Lewisham Delivery stage

£3,059
pledged of £4,648

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

London is a huge city and can be a lonely place for people. I would like to make our local community stronger and create a group of like-minded individuals who meet up on a regular basis to discuss themes, give each other advice, learn new skills and more importantly have a giggle. Each meet-up will be based on a different theme and we will have guest speakers/experts who will help to impart knowledge of their chosen field. The events will be held on a Sunday and will be akin to a New York- Style brunch.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create Women's collective/ comunity
  • Encourage upskilling of members
  • Engage key speakers and experts to be involved with the group
  • Find a regular venue in and around the Hither Green to hold the event

Why it's a great idea:

We live in an age now where we are all very busy, leading complicated and fast pace lives. Often we do not engage with other people in our own communities and it is a shame that people, especially in London, do not know other people in their communities. The idea of 'Wildflowers of Lewisham', is going to break down silos and ensure that a welcoming environment is created, where ladies can get together with similar individuals. They will also acquire new skills and be encouraged to indulge in self-improvement in relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.

Steps to get it done:

  • The aim is to have the first event in May 2016

I have successfully put on events in this area before. Please take a look at a 'Ladies Night' event for charity that I organised for the Huffington Post. This event raised over £1,500. See here to find out more: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/huffpost-uk-ladies-night-tickets-19146653155?aff=ebrowse
