Now in its fourth year, Women Who Inspire is organised by Cathy Ryan, who is a member of the Rotary Club of Southwold and District, which sponsors the event.

The event coincides with International Women's Day (March 8), which celebrates women's achievements throughout history and across the world.

This year's event will see speakers Angela Gorman, Karen Hester, Jan Etherington and Dr Pam Crispin sharing their stories to make a difference to the plight of women locally, nationally and internationally.

Women Who Inspire will be held at Halesworth Golf Club Restaurant from 6.30pm on March 8.

Tickets cost £45, which includes a two course dinner with wine, with all proceeds being donated to the charities of The Pink Ribbon Foundation and Life for African Mothers.

Last year's event was over subscribed so book early at: www.womenwhoinspire.co.uk
