At Smart Works Reading, our feet have just about touched the ground after the busy 2 weeks that was Henley Literary Festival! It was a fantastic event, and was their largest yet.

With the help, support and time of our amazing volunteers we managed to ‘woman’ the Smart Works stand all day for 6 days , sponsor and represent Smart Works at two dazzling events – Modern Life and Feminists Don’t Wear Pink and launch our first in the series of Smart Talks – our event on the 5th October. The week was busy and exciting, we raised over £500, received lots of brand-new lipstick donations, and on top of it all we have had subsequent interest in volunteering, supporting and donating which is amazing. One of our volunteers has kindly written a blog post about the event, which you can read here.

We are also in the Henley Standard – read all about it online or in print!

None of this could have been done without the incredible support of our volunteers and our sponsors, Field Seymour Parkes LLPa full-service legal practice within Reading, Berkshire and Antonia Taylor, PR and Communications Entrepreneur – who all deserve a huge thank you from the Smart Works Reading team!

Here’s to the next in the Smart Talks series, watch this space…
