All set for Never Again Royal Night Second Anniversary-5 April 2014

Never Again Royal Night Second Anniversary is here -5 April 2014-The Thurrock Hotel

It is now the talk of UK and many parts of the world where Royal Purple guests and their Royal Hostesses who are Princesses from Africa who support the charity work of Girl Child Network Worldwide gather to inspire, empower and do acts of generosity and giving back to their communities back in Africa. It is definitely growing as more and more supporters pour in.

Never Again Royal night is now in its second year having been successfully launched in 2013 in the peaceful and quiet hotel in Thurrock, Essex, United Kingdom. The event was full house with over 200 guests coming from all over UK and Zimbabwe. This year the event enters its second year with another best-selling book by Muzvare Betty Makoni expected to be launched in style on 5 April 2014. Event organisers have advised that in order for guests and participants to get the most out of the day, this time the event starts at 3pm sharp with book signing and networking as well as pictures on the purple carpet to ensure everyone gets the time to network fully as well as warm up to the empowering inspiring event.


Muzvare Betty Makoni`s official autobiography, Never Again, not to any woman or girl again, birthed this event and the trustees and supporters of Girl Child Network Worldwide have made this the official fundraiser for the charity where it is now a culture to bring all supporters, donors and those who want to build the charity to grow and be strong to come to a weekend  of inspiration and empowerment so as to get a test of some innovative programs the charity runs especially in Africa and the UK to support empowerment of the girl child in the home, school and community so that the girls develop into confident women leaders.

`It happens once a year and this is the only official fundraiser for the charity just to bring everyone who supports us and spend some quality time renewing our commitment. Never again Royal night is an event we inspire our supporters whilst they give. We believe as much as our supporters give to us we should give back and no matter how small. You are all invited to be part of Never Again Royal night,’ said Muzvare Betty Makoni.
