Macc thinks pink to sup­port cancer fight

Macclesfield Express - - CARE HOME WORKERS SCANDAL -

PINK-THEMED events are pop­ping up across Mac­cles­field in aid of breast cancer.

Paint Macc Pink will raise money and aware­ness for char­ity Pre­vent Breast Cancer.

One of the main events is a bar crawl in­volv­ing 21 pubs which starts this week­end (from Oc­to­ber 6 to 15). Par­tic­i­pants buy en­try cards from one of the venues and those who visit 10 venues could win a prize. A team of town door­men wear­ing pink will tour the pubs with husky dogs on Satur­day to pro­mote the event.

Sarah Bent­ley, 28, an or­gan­iser, says the char­ity is close to her heart as she is about to un­dergo surgery to pre­vent breast cancer.

She said: “My aunt, un­cle, grand­mother, great aunt and great grand­moth­ers had breast cancer and this in­creases my risk to 40per cent. My aunt sur­vived breast cancer but other fam­ily mem­bers didn’t. This caused my dad to have a pre­ven­ta­tive dou­ble mas­tec­tomy and I’m do­ing the same but with re­con­struc­tion. It’s such an im­por­tant cause.”

There’s a char­ity ride with the Bit­ter & Twisted mo­tor­cy­cle group on Oc­to­ber 22 and Sing Macc Pink event on Novem­ber 26. Visit face­book.com/ paint­mac­cpink for more.
