This is it – the final countdown to Local Women’s very special ‘This Is Me’ event we are hosting to celebrate the amazing work of The Pink Ladies.

This is our way of saying a big thank you to the wonderful work that The Pink Ladies do to support those with cancer in our area.

Our evening will be one of celebration. We will be hosting an awards show to pay tribute to some of the selfless members of The Pink Ladies who give so much to others. And then we will let the ladies step into the spotlight and take part in a fashion show – and there will also be beauty demonstrations and pop up stalls on the night.

I would like to invite everyone to come along and support this amazing cause at The Waterfoot Hotel on November 15.

And while we are in the mood for celebrations, this month Local Women is launching its awards! In conjunction with Firmus Energy we will be holding a province-wide awards ceremony at The Europa Hotel in Belfast next April.

Next month we will be announcing all the categories so don’t miss out on what promises to be the most exciting evening of the year.

And personally I could do with something to look forward to. Right now I’m in the middle of Transfer Test hell! My son is doing the dreaded exams this month and many a row has been had in our house over it!

It really is a shame that it causes such stress – so it was great to hear our writer Leona O’Neill’s views on the matter in her monthly column – safe to say she’s not fan!

And she also met two local ladies who didn’t make the grade in their tests years ago, but now are definitely top of the class when it comes to their careers.

Until next month,
