Isle of Man Breastcare
Providing direct support to the island's breast cancer patients and their families. THE ORIGINAL! with over 16 years experience.
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.

Regular informal meetings are held monthly at The Snaefell Surgery, Anagh Coar, Douglas or ‘One-to-one’ at home or on the telephone.

Trek raises £500!
We recently had a cheque presentation at The Grill in The Park, Douglas. In November, Jackie Elliott (one of our top models in Fashion for Life!) and her friend Liz Geldart took part in a charity trek to Machu Picchu in Peru. They raised money mainly for IOM Anti Cancer, but also £500 for us. They had an amazing experience. Laughter, tears and a hard slog but they made it!
Last of the Turkey from Central Marts
CENTRAL MARTS presented a cheque for £620 recently. This was raised as usual from their annual Christmas turkey raffle. Kenny Sloane again provided the turkey. They have been our supporters for many years now and this amount is the best yet! Thank you to everyone at the Mart, we really appreciate your continued support.
RBS kick off our New Year
Happy New Year from RBS International at Robert Pearson House in Douglas. We were one of their 14 nominated charities for 2014 and they have sent a cheque for £200 as a share of money raised throughout the year from Casual Dress days.
Oh yes they did!!
The cast of ‘Puss in Boots’ Panto had 2 bucket collections for us at the Gaiety during it’s run over Christmas and New Year. They raised a fabulous £763.03! Our good friends and supporters Gary Chatel, Sonia Callin, Dot Tilbury and David Artus were the principal characters. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
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.
