“In the Pink” for the fight against breast cancer


Do you fancy attending a glittering Black White and Pink Ball at Preston Guild Hall on the evening of Saturday 16th September?  Jonathan Tinning, Head of HR is organising the yearly event to support Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity.  Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK.  Every year it causes the deaths of around 11,500 women and 80 men.

Jonathan hopes that guests will be in the pink as they raise thousands of pounds for the fight against the fight against the disease.  Guests are being urged to add a splash of pink to their usual black tie attire and support the Charity’s fundraising, campaigning and educational work.

Jonathan’s wife, Joanne lost her brave 7 year fight against breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 37 and Jonathan told us:-

Because I can’t do the Race for Life I’ve taken part in various charity events to raise month for breast cancer research.  Cancer has affected so many people and families personally.  We’ve all been touched in some way or another.  Breast Cancer Now is a great cause to support and people can do so while also having a great time.  This is going to be our biggest and best ball ever.  We’re putting together a great evening of live entertainment  but the most important thing is the fundraising aspect, helping to save lives and changing people’s future.

The ticket price is £45 per person which includes a three-course meal, entertainment, live music, auction and raffle.  Jonathan is hoping 300 people will attend on the night.
