We are a small Charity consisting of 6 volunteer trustees most of whom are family members,
We raise money mainly for the Leeds Breast Care Unit at St James Hospital and Cancer Research UK
We have in the past provided the Breast Care Unit with a number of valuable resources enabling the consultants and patients to practice and receive the best treatment available. We also make very regular donations to Cancer Research UK for research into Breast Cancer.
Although we have been raising money for 10 years we received formal registered as a Charity in 2014.
We raise money by organising different events throughout the year which include a fashion show, wine tasting, coffee mornings, ladies lunches, shopping evenings, quiz nights and other small events. Our main fundraising event is a Grand Charity Ball.
Our stated objectives are ;

- Providing and improving resources and equipment for patients and consultants as appropriate to improve care, treatment and diagnosis of breast cancer.
- Raising awareness about early diagnosis and treatment and reminding people to check themselves.
