The 11th Mulberry Bush Oxfordshire Women of the Year Lunch was a great success.

Very sadly Nell Gifford could not attend, but our other speaker Dame Catherine Wybourn, a Benedictine nun, web developer, blogger and columnist, sometimes called ‘the enclosed nun with an unenclosed mind’, gave a thoroughly inspiring speech to rapturous applause.  Nell’s sister Emma Bridgewater very kindly spoke a few words on Nell’s behalf which were heart-warming. The chef at Wadham College gave us delicious food and it raised a lot of money.
