Breast Cancer Awareness

In the Pink -
October 19th

Ladies :)

What started out as an idea for a small gathering to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Awareness Organisation event 'In the Pink' has grown by huge proportions.

We already have around 30 ladies picking out something special to wear on the evening, be advised that we all have to wear a splash of pink. This is a great chance for us to raise awareness for a charity that works so hard to make a difference for those affected by breast cancer, I'm sure if we all think about it, we know at least one person who's life has been touched in some way by this.

Money raised by the nationwide (UK) day will help towards the funding of:

Online chat forums and a free helpline - a lifeline for many sufferers who often feel isolated by the disease

A service that matches people going through breast cancer with a trained volunteer who has already been through it

Courses such as the Younger Women's Forum or Living with Breast Cancer.

All of these services are free but are dependant on fund-raising campaigns such as 'In the Pink'

The cut off date for adding your name to the rapidly growing list is the 15th of September, so that we can be sure of numbers etc.

If you are interested, please contact myself on this email or mobile number 5905865 or Sam on - Mobile: 564-7374
