Last night I had the honour of attending The Inspiration Awards for Women for Breakthrough Cancer as my friend Erika Brodnock had been nominated for her work on Karisma Kids rag dolls aimed at inspiring children with confidence, creativity and self esteem.

The Inspiration Awards for Women celebrate the achievements of remarkable women who inspire those around them. Women are acknowledged and honoured for their amazing achievements in their everyday lives. The annual event takes place each October at the iconic Cadogan Hall in London.
