PEOPLE across Flintshire and Wrexham are being asked to champion their inspirational women.

Wrexham-based business woman Hannah Saunders won the Entrepreneur category of Womenspire 2019.

She won the award last year having set up Toddle - a business creating natural skincare products for children.

Run by gender equality charity, Chwarae Teg, the celebration aims to recognise and highlight the achievements and contributions of remarkable women from all walks of life.

Now in its fifth year, Womenspire 2020, will take place at St Fagans National Museum of History in Cardiff on Thursday, June 18 and see women awarded in a variety of different categories.

The categories include community champion, woman in sport, rising star, learner, entrepreneur, leader, people’s choice, woman in STEM, board member and Womenspire champion

Hannah, said: “I felt honoured to be nominated for the entrepreneur award, let alone to win. It was fantastic to be part of Womenspire and the awards evening itself was amazing.

"I’d urge people to put their thinking caps on and get nominating so that more local women can hopefully benefit from being involved in the whole Womenspire experience.”

There will also be two categories for organisations and businesses who are committed to gender equality and provide the support required for women to achieve and prosper.
