Our funds go DIRECTLY to patients and their families to help them through difficult times.  Not to be confused with another island breast cancer charity fundraising for a Breast Unit at Noble’s.

We are a Registered Charity  set up by local women who have all experienced breast cancer themselves, providing emotional, practical and financial support to patients, their friends and families through trained counsellors.  We have a positive working relationship with local healthcare providers and represent the concerns and interests of Breast Cancer patients.

High Speed Minis
The Isle of Man Mini Meet held their 2 day event again in July and raised £552.96 for us. The money was raised by people paying £15 to be driven round the race track at Jurby at high speed by a local rally driver. Over 30 Minis from the Island took part in the weekend and we are very grateful to all those who organised it and those who gave money.

L to R are, Ian Simms, John Tarrant, Marg Clarke, Paulene Lamb, Sharon and Glenn Leece.
 

Finger pickin' good!
The guitar concert on Saturday the 22nd November at the Peel Centenary Centre was a great success and a total of £1437.84 was raised for our charity. All the brilliant acts gave their time free of charge and Island Drainage and Groundworks sponsored the hire of the Centre. Thank you to everyone who took part, Dickie and Cath Kelly for organising the event, Paul and Roz Cringle for promoting it and all the Volunteers at the Centenary Centre.

Equiom boost!
A massive thank you to the staff at Equiom (IOM) Ltd who presented Sharon with a cheque for a fabulous £2500! They raised the money from their dress down days and other fundraising events.

Survivors Conference
We attended the first ' Isle of Man Cancer Survivorship Conference' held at Mount Murray on Friday 26th Sept. It was a great success with presentations from those who are on the same journey and an update from health professionals on service developments on the Isle of Man. Hopefully it will return next year.
