Breast Cancer Care – Creating Awareness in October

With the Hallamshire Golf Club dining room themed in pink, the stage was set to host our officially registered ‘Big Pink’ party, an evening of fun, food, friendship and a wee bit of fundraising too.  Our meal of chicken or salmon, with pretty pink desserts to follow, was delicious. Coffee and chocolates trimmed in pink completed the meal .

Our specially invited guests, Amy from Breast Cancer Care and Julia from Tesco, did a great job of encouraging everyone to take a chance on the competitions, whilst most members were puzzled by the Sheffield locations which they had to identify from photographs.  Jackie’s special pink tombola was very popular, whilst the auction, including items sponsored by Tesco,  created a great buzz of excitement as the bids rose to their finale.  The ‘Star of the Show’ was a most beautiful patchwork quilt, kindly donated for fundraising purposes by Vivien Finch, a former Soroptimist and President of the Quilters Guild.

Although this event was not purely just about fundraising, a fantastic amount was raised.  Our cheque for £725 will be forwarded to Breast Cancer Care in Sheffield.

A huge thank you to everyone for supporting this special event, which showcased Soroptimism at its best!

Thank you to Julia and Tescos for their ongoing support of our Project Action Campaigns.
