Welcome to BooBs-
Shaftesbury Breast Cancer Awareness is about raising awareness and educating ladies (and men) how to check their breasts. Our ethos is that if symptoms can be caught early enough it could save a life.
We will also help local people who have had a diagnosis with the cost of treatment, support, mastectomy bras & wigs. If the worst possible news is received we are here to help families in some way to create an everlasting memory
Shaftesbury Breast Cancer Awareness can put ladies with a diagnosis in touch with others locally who have fought or are fighting the battle to provide emotional support.
Although Shaftesbury Breast Cancer Awareness is primarily aimed at Breast cancer awareness it is not exclusive to this cancer and every opportunity will be taken to enhance the general public’s knowledge of early signs of other cancers.
Our main fundraising event is a ladies evening in October where we provide information and advice on symptoms of breast cancer and demonstrations to check your breasts. The evening also includes live speakers. We also hold a weekly fitness club and do regular entertainment evenings. All events provide information of cancer prevention, and care.
We have a Facebook page which shares tips and news and enables us to reach the local community.
We sell branded merchandise to raise notoriety and awareness.
The distribution of monies raised is put before the board of trustees to agree.
