North East Ladies Day was established in 1983 (then named North East Ladies Luncheon) to bring ladies across the North-East region closer together. Attendees of North East Ladies Day events raise substantial funds for well deserving charities. Our President and Founder, Jean Stuart, was instrumental in our creation. Since then, the event has continued to grow and in 2017 we added a new annual event to our calendar, the Afternoon Tea. To date, NELD has raised almost £300,000 for local North-East charities. In 2018, we are delighted to be supporting three charities – JPC Community Farm, Neoangels and We Can Dance.
Our Annual Luncheon, usually held in September each year, includes a three course lunch and an opportunity to make some purchases from a large variety of stalls. We even have a fashion show and celebrity guest speaker. We are delighted that the event is so well supported, with almost 600 ladies enjoying the event each year.
