Our Queen bee and official mascot, BooBee, first buzzed onto the scene in 2019. Dreamed up by our Patron, Margo Cornish, and Stir Creative’s, Melanie Hudson, BooBee is a twist on Manchester’s iconic worker bee symbol.
With the help of BooBee, we flew in the face of breast cancer when we launched our 2019 BreastFest Campaign, which enabled us to pollinate awareness, fundraise, and spread our wings across Manchester, and beyond! She helped us recruit to our hive, 100 women, affectionately known as BooBees, who had been affected by breast cancer – empowering them to share their stories and to be part of something incredible throughout the whole campaign.
After a brief hiatus due to the pandemic, BooBee returned in 2022 when we launched our latest breast cancer awareness campaign – BooBee’s Big Campaign.
Below you can read all about where BooBee has been and where she is heading in the future.
