Hello! Faye here!

I know reading big blocks of text can be a bit overwhelming so here are the headlines...

The South Yorkshire Prince's Trust Enterprise Team and myself are hosting a super friendly and (we hope) not-initimidating get together for women in business supported by the Prince's Trust.

There won't be scary icebreaker activities. If you're not comfortable talking to a room full of people, there will be no obligation to. And if you only want to drop in for a bit, that's totally ok.

A Bit of Background

As you may know, BearHugs was launched with the support of the Prince's Trust and I am now very proud to be a Prince's Trust Young Ambassador.  

My Prince's Trust mentor Greg and I regularly chat about how starting a business on your own can be daunting. I know how much having brilliant, supportive women around me has helped me over the last couple of years. So I loved the idea of being involved with creating a friendly hub of women who support each other and cheer each other on.

 

Not Prince's Trust Supported but interested in joining us?

We are running the very first get together for women supported by the Prince's Trust. This is mainly because it is a bit of trial and we want to see how it goes. All being well, we would absolutely love to open it up to others in the future. If you're interested, please do sign up by clicking the 'I can't make this one, but would love to hear about future get togethers' button above. 

 

How to find us

 

Our address is BearHugs, Unit 1, 18 Stalker Walk, Sheffield, S11 8NF

When you get to the Graze Inn on Ecclesall Road turn onto Harland Road. Then take a right onto Stalker Lees Road. We are on a little road to the left. You will see a sign for Haywood and Co accountants who are our next door neighbours.

You'll know you're in the right place when you can see our wall of fairy lights :)

 

 

 

 

Things to bear in mind

We often have a dog called Ruby in the office. She is a lovely, friendly Border Collie but we realise not everyone is a dog person. If this is a worry for you at all, please just let us know. 

We have two car parking spaces outside our building. If you'd like to use one, please let us know in advance.
