REAL FUNNY WOMEN AWARD
IN ASSOCIATION WITH REFUGe
2013 real funny women award winner: jeanette hawkins
WHat is the real funny women award?
The Real Funny Women Award looks for those innately funny females in our lives who use their natural comedic flair to get through the most adverse situations, and whose humourous and spirited approach to life is a true inspiration to others.
Past winners of this Award include Kris Hallenga, founder of the breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel, whose humourous approach to charity work has been a very real inspiration to others. This year's winner, Jeanette Hawkins, was nominated by her daughter Kimberley, who watched her mother suffer domestic violence at the hands of her father and stepfather for nineteen years. Despite this, Jeanette still manages to show a sunny disposition and excellent humour, which makes her a much-loved individual and a true inspiration.
2013's Award saw us raise funds and awareness for domestic violence charity Refuge.
the lucky nominee will receive...
- Two VIP tickets to the Funny Women Awards Final in London, plus a pre drinks reception at The Groucho Club
- A stay for two at a swanky London hotel, courtesy of Benefit Cosmetics
- A Benefit Cosmetics 'Pamper day,' complete with Benefit goodies
