THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL ATTEND 100 WOMEN IN FINANCE GALA DINNER IN SUPPORT OF ‘MENTALLY HEALTHY SCHOOLS’
V&A Museum, London
Wednesday 13th February, 2019
The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of 100 Women in Finance’s Philanthropic Initiatives, will attend a Gala Dinner in aid of ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’, at the V&A Museum on Wednesday 13th February. Her Royal Highness will attend a private reception before making a short speech ahead of the dinner.
Launched by The Duchess at the beginning of 2018, ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ is one of the legacy programmes from the Heads Together campaign, which aims to help people of all ages start conversations about their mental health. The landmark project, run by The Royal Foundation, helps teachers and school leaders better support children’s mental wellbeing, by offering school staff reliable and practical resources through a website developed by the youth-focussed charity partners of Heads Together; the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, Place2Be and Young Minds.
For The Duchess, supporting young people was always at the heart of Heads Together, and is a key focus of Her Royal Highness’s work at The Royal Foundation.
100 Women in Finance (100WF) is a leading non-profit organisation for professionals in the alternative investments industry. 100WF’s Board of Directors selects a charitable organisation for its philanthropic initiatives from women’s and family health, mentoring and education programmes. Net proceeds from this year’s Gala Dinner will be given to The Royal Foundation’s Mentally Healthy Schools Programme.
