We are honouring some of the most amazing women in our town, the country and the world. It's an incredible opportunity for all of us to both learn from them and, where we can, stay in touch. The vision to help where help is needed, and to celebrate the courage and common goals, where together we will make this world a better place. It’s a huge opportunity. And, it's both exciting and humbling.

SHE INSPIRES awards celebrate the huge wealth of outstanding contributions women have made to Bolton in 18 diverse categories. Six of these categories are open to women from all over the UK and the world.

It’s a night of celebration and achievements of women from all walks of life in our diverse and thriving community, showcasing extraordinary examples of courage, triumph, kindness, compassion, transformation, skill and success.

Packed with stories of unsung heroes, community champions and women who have gone above and beyond in the course of their work, service and passions, we endevour to highlight and celebrate exceptional accomplishments from women locally and globally year on year. 

"Now the next generation of inspirational women is about to step forward. A reminder that the march of women leaders continues. We should all feel comforted by the knowledge that more great women step forward each year.''

It’s my great pleasure to welcome you all to the She Inspires Awards.

Gulnaz Brennan, Founder of SheInspires Group

Kelvin Fletcher's 2020 TROPHY TOUR 

Actor Kelvin Fletcher brought smiles to award winners’ faces when he personally delivered trophies to them in a whistle-stop tour of the North West. The University of Bolton ambassador, who hosted the 2020 SHE INSPIRES Awards ceremony virtually because of the pandemic, finally got the chance to hand over the impressive trophies. Kelvin said...

“It has been a fantastic day and a lovely thing to do and it needed to be done. Under normal circumstances on the night I would have been meeting the winners face to face and hugging them as I gave them their trophies.That obviously wasn’t possible because of the pandemic, so this was the next best thing and the least we could do to recognise these amazing women.”

Thank you Kelvin Fletcher!
