Go Pink to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month

NAIL and hand care sessions, as well as tea, coffee and baking, will be available at a Pink event to be held by the Lewis and Harris Breast Cancer Support Group this month.

To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the local Breast Cancer Support Group will be holding an event on Thursday, October 25th, in the Town Hall in Stornoway from 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

A raffle will also be held on the day. Entrance to the Pink event will be £5.

A recent Breast Cancer Awareness Day held in CnES headquarters on October 10th to raise money for the Lewis and Harris Breast Cancer Support Group raised an impressive £500.50.

During the day, staff from the local Support Group delivered workshops and students from Lews Castle College provided hand and nail treatments.

Grateful thanks are given to all those who donated baking. Winner of the tray bake was Susan McGrath, and winners of the hampers were Diane Morrison, Technical Services, and Jim McCulloch, Taxi Driver.
