Start those conversations that are easier over a brew

We know talking about breast cancer can be really difficult, but it’s important we speak up and have the conversation with our family and friends. A Pink Afternoon Tea is not only the perfect excuse for a catch-up with loved ones, but a chance to raise awareness and funds in a safe space.

“The best thing you can do is to actually talk to your family members and break the taboo. It’s brought us together, it’s made us more aware, and I think everybody needs to be aware of it.” – Candy Ekanoye

“It’s time to have the conversation with ourselves, and especially our mums, aunties, and grandmothers.” – Sade Oludoyi

Raise funds for Prevent Breast Cancer and start those conversations that are easier over a brew with a Pink Afternoon Tea this October.

We’re so proud of everybody involved, who are absolutely smashing their fundraising target of £38,000 for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Keep an eye on our social media to see how they get on!

Wear It Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Why Your Support Matters

We need your help to make breast cancer a preventable disease for our future generations. Here’s what your support this Breast Cancer Awareness Month means to our community.

Victoria Merrill – ‘I didn’t check myself regularly prior to my diagnosis and feel so lucky to have found it the way I did. I don’t have a family history of breast cancer and have two young daughters, so I’m passionate about the focus of Prevent Breast Cancer’s work around early detection, and research into risk factors for women like myself, which will be applicable for future generations including my girls.’

Leony McPherson – ‘A breast cancer free future means a life for my family free of the worry of ‘who’s next?’. A future free of the worry of my daughter wondering if I will be okay. A future free of the worry of my mother praying she will not lose another child!’

More Ways To Fundraise For Prevent Breast Cancer

Why not encourage your colleagues to wear pink one Wednesday and make a donation? You could even print and leave our awareness posters around the office!
