The Women’s Irish Network Fundraiser


What: A Fundraising Lunch for the Women's Irish Network

Where: The Waldorf Hilton, London


Members of the London Irish met in the elegant surroundings of the Waldorf Hilton for a special fundraising lunch. The event was to raise money for the Women's Irish Network (WIN), which hosts regular meetups to enable women to network in an informal atmosphere. Long-time WIN supporters, actress
 Pauline McLynn and comedian/presenter Dara O'Briain took part in an entertaining discussion of their careers in comedy and onscreen.

The event marked the twentieth year of fundraising for the WIN, which has collected over €600,000 for the Irish Youth Foundation to date. A fundraising raffle on the day featured covetable prizes from top Irish brands including Chupi, Inis, Pestle & Mortar and Max Benjamin.
