The stress for cancer patients in Greater Manchester has never been higher, so we are calling out to everyone in our Media, Digital and Creative community to join us throughout October in support of the Prevent Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Put the ‘FUN’ into fundraising during October

There are so many ways to fundraise. You could go solo, or take the opportunity to get together with your team, a group of friends or your family.

Join our MPA ‘Inside Stories’ on 21st October at 12-1pm

We will be running an inspiring MPA ‘Inside Stories’ with Prevent Breast Cancer ambassador Sally Hurst.

BBC journalist and former GB para-cyclist, Sally Hurst has battled cancer twice: losing a leg to bone cancer at age 26, before being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 38. She began cycling competitively after losing her leg, turning to the sport as a way to take back control over her life.

We will be asking for donations to sign up to this online event with monies going directly to the charity. Watch this space for more details.

Eat Drink Think Pink Lunch

Like a great pink fizz, this one is on ice for now. Just as soon as we have a new date we will let all our supporters know and we will be releasing a few more tickets nearer the time please watch this space.
