About the Awards

Jean Gadsby, of Gadsbys Accountants, Ellie Kerr and Elaine Owen from the digital marketing company Designated are the organisers and facilitators of the awards event.

The purpose of the Merseyside Women of the Year event is to celebrate women’s achievements, to reward the best of the best, and leave a legacy for the next generation of Women.
The event has been designed to reward the unsung heroines of Merseyside, for their achievements in just doing what they do best, changing lives, giving that extra meaning to people’s lives across Merseyside.

Annually the judging panel receive over a significant number of nominations, making their job very difficult! Due diligence is carried out on all the nominees, to ensure that only the most deserving are selected as finalists.
Each year, the event helps to raise money for the Merseyside Women of the Year Legacy Awards and Radio City Cash for Kids.

The overall “Merseyside Woman of the Year”, is voted for by members of the general public, Radio City listeners and is completely independent.
Attendees at the events tell us that this was the best event ever and each year got harder to beat.

Exciting new developments for our next year are already underway, if you think you or your business could help us to make 2017 an even bigger and better event then please call the office in the first instance and speak to Elaine 0151 653 3338 or 0798 064 2626
