On Thursday 8th March, Tec Marina hosted a well-attended charity breakfast to mark International Women’s Day. We selected Welsh Women’s Aid as our chosen charity for the event. Eleri Butler MBE., CEO of Welsh Women’s Aid, joined us at the event to share insight into the work they do to end domestic abuse and all forms of violence against women.
The team from Scarlet Design came along to listen to the talk and illustrated Eleri’s main points and figures in their own, unique style.
Co-founder of fin-tech company Wealthify, Michelle Pearce, also spoke at the event with an interesting talk discussing why so few women invest their money. Michelle has been featured in ‘Wales’ 35 Under 35’ list of young professional women based in Wales for the past two years. Wealthify are based in Tec Marina and have recently made headlines after receiving a significant investment from insurance giant, Aviva.
International Women’s Day is held on March 8th each year and celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. Tec Marina’s event is on track to raise over £500 for Welsh Women’s Aid.
