BreastFest 2019

Buzzing about Manchester this October


BreastFest Afternoon Bee Prevent Breast Cancer Charity UK

We are a hive, a family, a movement. Working together we can build a future free from breast cancer & here’s how you can get involved!

After many months in the planning, we’re so excited to let you know about our new campaign BreastFest! Timed to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, BreastFest is a unique and innovative awareness and fundraising campaign to make Greater Manchester the most breast-aware region in the UK, if not the world.

BreastFest will educate women about breast cancer risks and equip them with a toolkit to better breast health, whilst protecting our daughters, granddaughters and every generation to come from this devastating disease.

Working alongside cancer charity campaigner and Prevent supporter Margo Cornish, our goal is to give women the knowledge they need to understand the risk factors that can lead to breast cancer and to educate them about the symptoms.

What’s the buzz?

Just like a hive we are stronger as one!

Alongside our Queen bee & official mascot BooBee, we have a hive of BooBee’s: 100 women affected by breast cancer who will work alongside us sharing their stories in a bid to engage, educate & inspire! With the help of Boobee we fly in the face of this terrible disease & we aim to pollinate awareness, fundraise & spread our wings across Manchester and beyond!

  • Raising funds to support the vital work of Prevent Breast Cancer
  • Educating & sharing the stories of our BooBee’s, 100 women affected by breast cancer
  • Showcasing the world-leading research into prediction & prevention of breast cancer, taking place right here in Manchester
  • Equipping all with a toolkit to better breast health
