Woman Who is not just about one day in the calendar year and the celebrations continue throughout the following weeks and months.


Congratulations Veronica Kumeta of Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer, Joint Winner of the Woman Who Achieves Charity & Social Enterprise Award 2021, Sponsored by Alsters Kelley Solicitors.


The Woman Who Achieves & Solopreneur Awards took place on Friday 1st October. This year we held a hybrid event with many joining us in the Marquee at Coombe Abbey and those that couldn’t, joining online.


Congratulations Veronica on your achievements and thank you to all the Winners and Finalists for your support and making this event into an amazing hybrid Awards event.

Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer (LFBC) was established in 2000 by Veronica Kumeta and the late Sue Macmaster, after their

friend Carol Knaggs was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Carol sadly lost her battle with cancer; as did Sue.
But their legacy lives on through outreach and community care provided by LFBC.

LFBC raises awareness around the importance of early detection, whilst raising funds (more than £1.5 million for Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital Trust).


A great interview and so inspiring. Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer is a charity that supports so many women. We so admire Veronica’s commitment to the charity, which has been going for 20 years.

Congratulations to all the Finalists in this Category

As a social entrepreneur, it’s wonderful to see social enterprises included as a category; to be a finalist in the category is incredible! I’m very grateful, and happy!, to be included alongside other amazing community organisations. Thank you.
