October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and as in previous years there will be a number of events in our area to support this worthwhile cause.
Over the last five years the local community has helped our Ambassador for the Breast Cancer Campaign, Shirley Hallam, to raise almost £20,000 towards research into metastasis at Newcastle University, and Shirley is keen to improve on that total by asking for your help again this year.
One event in particular takes place on Saturday 5th October, when Waves Leisure Pool will turn pink thanks to the support of North Tyneside Council. Enjoy a family day out with pink waves at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, the pink café with cupcakes and a ‘pink scorcher’ milk shake, a tombola stall and activities for children, as well as the return of the ‘Water Walkers’! Last year this event raised over £300 for the charity and it would be fantastic to improve on that this year.
Other events are still being finalised, and as soon as we have the details we’ll make sure they are listed here, so please check there to find out more.
If you would like further information, can offer raffle prizes or even if you have an idea to share with Shirley, call her on 0191 252 5352 or contact her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And, thank you for any support you can give!
As ever, we welcome feedback on the magazines, so if you have any comments then do please get in touch – call us on 0191 253 7608 or send an email to email@example.com.
