Bravo, bra walk­ers

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

Women from across the re­gion put on their bras to give ex­tra sup­port to a good cause, writes Kathie Grif­fiths.

Thirty-nine women joined a spon­sored Twi­light Walk from the Vic­tory Hall in Ben­der­loch.

Or­gan­iser Nicky Mur­phy said the event had brought in £1,985 to­wards a Pink Ladies pam­per­ing day for women who have ex­pe­ri­enced breast can­cer.

The spe­cial day, now in its fifth year, is on Novem­ber 30 at Loch Fyne Ho­tel in In­ver­aray. The day costs around £5,000 to put on for women who ben­e­fit from the day of pam­per­ing, fun and friend­ship. Women can bring some­one with them to share it – last year 85 women at­tended.

Funds to­wards the Pink Ladies Day also came from a choir per­for­mance at Oban’s Royal Ho­tel (turn to p25), and a cof­fee and cake event in Oban.

Ms Mur­phy said: ‘It was won­der­ful to see 39 women turn up for our Twi­light Walk in their dec­o­rated bras. Prizes went to one lady who put spot­lights on hers and the other prize went to friends who turned their bras into uni­corns. Thanks for the sup­port.’
