The Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven (WBUH) charity held its first ever ball on Saturday 1 October and started Breast Cancer Awareness Month in style by raising £30,004.25 for the charity.
WBUH which is the only breast cancer charity in Worcestershire welcomed almost 300 guests to its Perfectly Pink Ball at The Bank House. Guests danced the night away, bid in an auction and had the first viewing of a brand new charity video which powerfully described the work of the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven.
Lexi Craigie, charity director for WBUH said: “Whether you were a guest, a sponsor, donated a raffle or auction prize, part of the entertainment or behind the scenes, thank you so much, you all contributed towards making the event a huge success. The charity team is beyond delighted with the amount raised which will go to help women and men in Worcestershire with breast cancer. For every one pound raised, 80p goes directly to our patients and helping them at different stages of breast cancer, whether it’s a patient support pack for them, a mastectomy bra, information leaflets or funding complementary therapies such as reflexology and acupuncture as recommended by our wonderful NHS breast care nurses here at the Worcestershire Breast Unit, we are thrilled that the ball raised this sum to help fund this support.”
