Fun night will boost breast can­cer char­ity

Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

A HINCK­LEY mum is or­gan­is­ing a fam­ily-friendly fundraiser in sup­port of a breast can­cer char­ity.

Sa­man­tha Pater­son de­cided she wanted to help Breast Can­cer Care be­cause she knows women who are bat­tling the dis­ease.

The mum-of-two is hold­ing the event on Satur­day De­cem­ber 16 at the Wykin So­cial Club in Fred­er­ick Av­enue.

The club have of­fered her the func­tion room for free and a range of lo­cal busi­nesses have al­ready pro­vided raf­fle and tombola prizes.

Sa­man­tha, 32, said: “Peo­ple have been very gen­er­ous so far but if there is any­one who wants to do­nate any­thing then the more the mer­rier. I’m just try­ing to raise as much money as I can.”

Doors open at 7pm for the evening which will fea­ture games and com­pe­ti­tions such as “guess the weight of the cake” and “guess the name of the teddy” along with a tombola and other ac­tiv­i­ties.

Cakes will be on sale as well as sweet cones for candy lovers, old and young alike.

There will be a live band and a DJ is also be­ing ar­ranged. Ad­mis­sion is 50p for adults and over 10s.

Any­one who would like to help or of­fer items for the night can con­tact Sa­man­tha at milli2003@hot­mail.

Breast Can­cer Care is the only UK wide char­ity of­fer­ing care, in­for­ma­tion and sup­port to peo­ple with breast can­cer.

It was founded in 1973 by Betty West­gate, five years af­ter her own di­ag­no­sis with breast can­cer in 1968. A FEAST of fun in aid of vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren is promised this Fri­day at Hinck­ley Methodist Church.

The venue plays host to a Chil­dren in Need fundrais­ing event or­gan­ised by lo­cal cou­ple Ed­die and Ca­role Spencer.

The pair are long­stand­ing sup­port­ers of the BBC spon­sored char­ity event and used to hold Pud­sey par­ties in their back gar­den.

They have taken to hir­ing the Methodist Church, of which they are mem­bers, as Ed­die ex­plains: “We’re get­ting too old and it’s get­ting too cold.”

The event takes place from 4pm to 8pm and an ac­tual visit by Pud­sey the bear is ex­pected.

Among the at­trac­tions will be model rail­ways, Scalextric and re­fresh­ments such as tea and cake. All are wel­come to at­tend.
