BUSINESS bosses will spend a day at the races at the latest networking meeting for women.

The Hartlepool-based Women What Do group is promising something different for the town’s female entrepreneurs on Friday, September 20.

The Ladies Day at the Races will be held at The Avenue, in Avenue Road, Hartlepool with the fun starting at 7pm and lasting until late.

The race day has been organised by an organisation called Trading Treasures whose members are part of the Women What Do network.

As well as being a chance to mingle with other business bosses, the race day is a fundraising evening in aid of Hartlepool and District Hospice and The Denise Taylor Cancer Trust.

Women What Do group joint founder Pamela Hargreaves said: “We are proud to support something that is helping two really good charities in Hartlepool.”

“The evening will not only give you the opportunity to dress up in your favourite ‘ladies day’ dress, and hat for the more adventurous, but there will also be a fashion show.”

The fun will include “a number of boutique stalls and the chance to win a few pounds during the race events,” said Pam.

Spaces will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Those interested should quote ‘Women What Do’ when booking their tickets.

There are also a limited number of opportunities to take a stand at the event.

Tickets are £10 available in advance from Karen Lynagh at Trading Treasures, Unit 25, Hartlepool Enterprise Centre, or on 07904867199 or (01429) 597205.

The idea of Women What Do is that it is a chance for females to get together in an informal atmosphere and discuss common issues and share ideas over wine and nibbles.

It is open to women who own or manage a business; are self-employed or freelance; work in their family business; are managers in voluntary sector organisations including charities and social enterprises; work within the public sector but who have an interest in economic development and/or business issues; or are thinking about setting up a business or are in the process of setting up a business.
