Today’s post is all about promoting a fanstastic local charity, Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer and I also wanted to tell you about an event at which I will be speaking on Thursday next week (25th).
The charity was set up with the aim of buying additional equipment for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. The first fundraising project saw the team of volunteers raise £5000 to buy a cooling cap to prevent hair loss during treatment. A further sum of £150 000 was raised to buy an Ultrasound scanner.
In total the charity has raised over £1 million which has provided the hospital with vital equipment, enabling it to become a centre of excellence. As a result of this, the hospital is able to provide patients with a level of treatment far beyond the means of the NHS.
Funds are currently being raised to buy a second, and much urgently needed, mobile mammogram trailer.
I will be hitting the shops beforehand, buying all sorts of fabulous pieces about which to talk during my “bit”. My aim is to provide plenty of hints and tips on styling, to look at some trends for the season, to talk about building the perfect capsule wardrobe – and anything else that I think may take our fancy! There are some great raffle prizes, fabulous stalls and a fashion quiz too.
So, if you would like to come along, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org Otherwise, I just really wanted to try and help raise awareness of this charity. Breast cancer is a cause which is close to many of us, so any help which you could offer in terms of raising awareness, making a donation, offering a raffle prize or even better, coming along and saying hello, would be very much appreciated.
