Committee

Below are the committe of trustees for Pink Events

Founder & Chair
Sarah Pattinson
“If your sister was diagnosed with breast cancer what would you do ?
I organised a charity Pink Ball to distract her during her treatment. Kimberley was too ill to help with the organisation and it took all her courage to attend on the night and what a night ! The night which launched Pink Events.

Before I had children, I worked as a Personal Assistant and coordinated many corporate functions. Planning and organising is my strength. It is a pleasure to be part of Pink Events and although there is a lot of hard work involved it is certainly worth all the effort.

Committee Member
Angela Agar

“I have been involved in fundraising for Pink Events for a number of years after family members were diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Along with my husband, Bob, we have organised clay pigeon shoots, made and sold jams and home made fruit liqueurs and donated the profits to Pink Events.
Before I retired I managed a large sports and recreational association and therefore have lots of experience in planning and organising events.

I feel privileged to work with the committee and am very proud of our achievements thus far.”


Mandy Bellfield
Trustee
“I became involved with Pink Events after family members were diagnosed with Breast cancer.
I help at various events. Source raffle prizes. I also run a small Tuck Shop at work from a set of filing drawers. Suprisingly over the last few years it has raised a substantial amount of money for Pink Events.”

 


Jacky Lister
Trustee
“I am Sarah’s friend. We first met when our children were at primary school. I joined the PTA and later became the Chair person where I organised events such as school fairs, shopping evenings and an annual ball.
A few years later, after Kim was diagnosed, Sarah decided to organise a ball to raise money for breast cancer and following that I joined her to help arrange other events. My main job at Pink Events is to try to get  companies, small businesses and individuals to donate prizes and services for our events as the less we pay for things the more we donate to Breast Cancer.”


Kimberley O’Rourke
Trustee

“I joined the Pink Events committee just after being diagnosed with breast cancer the previous year. My main role is helping plan and organise events, all whilst rallying my friends and family in support. I work closely with the other ladies on the committee, not only in order to raise money but to raise awareness of the disease and the effects it can have. Becoming part of Pink Events means that I can put my love of entertaining to work. I am proud to be part of Pink Events and the amazing work we do.”


MaureenMaureen Young
Trustee / Treasurer
“I am mother to Kimberley and Sarah and was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010.  Sarah organised our first ball following Kimberley’s diagnosis and I joined Pink Events shortly after that.
I enjoy the role of treasurer/secretary for Pink Events and it gives me a lot of pleasure being part of an organisation which has raised so much money for the Leeds Breast Care Unit and Cancer Research UK.
I am very proud of what we do as a committee and very grateful to all the people who contribute and help to make our charity a success.”
