Ladies Lunch Raises over £2,500 for Breast Cancer Now

Now in its third year, the Lancashire Ladies Charity Lunch, raising vital funds for Breast Cancer Now (BCN), saw 70 of Lancashire’s business and professional ladies come together for a very special bring & buy lunch.

In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the event supported the UK’s largest Breast Cancer Charity. Right now, breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving, but more are being diagnosed than ever before. One in eight women in the UK will face breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast Cancer Now are dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease with the aim that no-one dies from Breast Cancer after 2050.

The event was organised by Ann Jordan from the TiE Network, Gillian Seville from KPMG and Gillian Bardin of Taylor Patterson, part of Mattioli Woods plc, and was hosted by The Villa Italian in Preston.

This year the event was excited to welcome Lydia Amartey (pictured), Corporate Account Officer at Breast Cancer Now. Lydia gave an informative and emotive talk which emphasised the importance of BCN’s work.

The lunch, charity raffle and bring & buy raised an impressive £1,254 for BCN. Mattioli Woods plc are continuing their sponsorship of the charity this year and once again agreed to match the funds raised at the lunch, resulting in a fantastic £2,500 !

Commenting on the event Ann Jordan said “It has been a great honor to bring together such a fabulous group of Lancashire Businesswomen to support such a worthy cause. The bring and buy event was such an easy way to raise funds and once again our ladies donated some fabulous gifts. Thank you to everyone who made this such a fun and worthwhile event.”
