Welcome to The Women of Scotland Lunch

Bird’s eye view of the 2017 lunch

The Women of Scotland Lunch is an annual lunch set up to celebrate the great achievements of women in Scotland and the next lunch will be held on Friday 27 April 2018. The charity for 2018 is Bloodwise, the charity fighting all types of blood cancer.

Invitations will be emailed and posted out in February 2018.

The Lunch was founded by May Hamp-Hamilton in 1958 and was set up to draw together a cross section of influential women in Scotland to celebrate their success in their many and varied endeavours. While fundraising is not the foremost purpose of the lunch it is a welcome side benefit.

As a main ethos of the lunch is to meet and mingle, your place will be chosen at random, unless you book a full table of 10 places.

The charity for 2017 was Alzheimer Scotland. Our charities are chosen in Autumn each year so if you would like to be considered then please email chair@wosl.co.uk

We raised an incredible £33,000 for Alzheimer Scotland so a huge thanks to all those who attended the lunch and donated and sponsored us. Its one of the biggest amounts we’ve ever raised.


The previous year, 2016, our chosen charity was  Music in Hospitals Scotland and the lunch raised £23,000. They were so happy with this that they sent their musicians back to play for us during the reception for the lunch in 2017.
