Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington speaks at Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch
Originally founded and supported by MSIF, Bathgate Business Finance and DTM Legal in 2018, the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch now boasts a plethora of sponsors
Olympic swimming star Rebecca Adlington was the guest speaker at this year’s Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch (LSL).which brought together the professional community of the city to celebrate the achievements of women in the sporting industry.
Originally founded and supported by MSIF, Bathgate Business Finance and DTM Legal in 2018, the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch now boasts a plethora of sponsors including Brabners, NatWest Commercial, Bibby Financial Services and Flavell Wealth Management.
With the success of last year’s event, which involved Beth Tweddle as guest speaker, the LSL committee were keen to support another charitable cause with a second successful event, alongside the help of another impressive key speaker.
The LSL team was able to secure Rebecca Adlington as guest speaker for the event that took place at the DoubleTree (Hilton), Liverpool. Through working with Rebecca, the team were able to support her charity of choice, the Encephalitis Society; which has a personal tie to the Olympic swimmer, with her sister receiving a diagnoses of the condition in early life.
Donations raised are yet to be confirmed but it is understood that the Sportswoman’s Lunch have surpassed their target for the second-hosted event.
A spokeswoman from the LSL said “We are delighted that the event has been such a success the second-time around. When we first conceived the idea for the Liverpool Sportswoman’s Lunch, we had no idea that it would be this popular. We are incredibly proud to support a great cause and are extremely humbled to be supported by another great Sportswoman, Rebecca Adlington.”
Rebecca added: “I have been an ambassador with the Encephalitis Society for 11 years, ever since my sister was affected by the condition. I am in awe of their work and passion and so I am really thrilled to be part of this exciting Liverpool Sportswomen’s Lunch – raising awareness and funds toward their incredible work.”
