My pitch delivered to the ladies at Blue Stockings Society on Monday 23rd Jan. Following this is the text I collaboratively through prompts generated by ChatGTP.
We came together at Tiger Community Enterprise in Nottingham's Lister Gate. It was about networking to bring a problem or issue we'd like help from fellow entrepreneurs. There was a opportunity to vote on who you think should win the £600 accumulated fund and network with other amazing women. I took SafetyCurtain as I presented my first ever pitch to fundraise. My pitch written with the help of ChatGTP3.
The winner was Fatou from Guinea (photo bottom right) who told us about the experience of pregnant women in her home country and her own sisters death while trying to give birth. Fatou’s friend has just trained as a midwife and is setting up a voluntary birthing hut so that women can access free support and midwifery and hopes to reduce mortality rates in their home town. The £600 will buy sterilising equipment, beds and packs given to the women after birth.

Ladies, I am excited to introduce you all to SafetyCurtain, an international charitable trust that I have been a trustee of since 2019. SafetyCurtain is dedicated to providing small grants, usually less than $1,200 (around £970), to struggling actors outside of the UK. Our small grants help with essential living costs and personal medical bills to assist those living in war zones, extreme poverty or exposed to political conflict.
SafetyCurtain stands side by side with performers in the toughest places in the world.
