International Women's Day Grant

This International Women’s Day, we would like to honour Philip Kingsley’s commitment to mentorship, by launching our first grant to support a female owned start-up business or blossoming idea.

The Kingsley family are passionate about encouraging and supporting women to accomplish their goals and dreams
