Bollywood fundraiser to fight breast cancer
How’s this for an idea 💡 Host a Bollywood themed summer party at your home, ask everyone to dress up, book dhol drummers, dancers and Henna artists, serve up bowls of delicious curry AND raise money for those affected by breast cancer by charging for tickets and selling raffle tickets and pink ribbon brooches …. that’s EXACTLY what Sharon and Sharon (Combined Knowledge Ltd) did at the weekend and it was a brilliant day/night attended by friends and family including our very own Patron Lisa Lashes!!! Over £1,300 was raised for the Pink Ribbon Foundation 🎀 Just goes to show that ANYONE can raise money for a good cause, without the need to hire a venue – imagination and a desire to support is all you need. Thank you to everyone involved: Oh My Dhol drummers, Creative Edge Dance Academy dancers and The New Sunar Gow, Lutterworth.
Raffle prizes kindly donated by: Holiday Inn London Kensington High Street, Moda in Pelle, Lindex UK, Paul Mitchell, Rapesco Office Products and FDD International.

The Niesen Stairway-Run
As a company our friends at Corinthian Sports Ltd wanted to find a challenge that would be both difficult mentally and physically (and something a bit out of the norm) in support of their Charity of the Year, the Pink Ribbon Foundation.
The Niesen Stairway-Run seemed like the perfect race to participate in, and it proved to be a great experience for them all. With 11,674 steps and an elevation gain of 1669m the staircase, which runs alongside the funicular, is the longest in the world. Runners start every 20 seconds with the aim of completing this 3.5km trail, known as “Switzerland’s Pyramid”.
Every step taken was to help raise money for those who have been affected by breast cancer. It was certainly a challenge and we are extremely proud of the team for getting to the top – a rewarding experience for a great cause. Thank you!

Our heartfelt thanks go to Scott and everyone at SFC Academy who recently held a fantastic family filled charity day to honour a wonderful lady and great friend who sadly battled and lost her fight to cancer.

Their fantastic 5-a-side tournament (in memory of Lynsey Joseph) and family fun day which incorporated bouncy castle, glitter tattoos, hair braiding, food stands and raffle, helped them to raise the fantastic amount of £8,745 for the Foundation!!!
⚽️🎀⚽️ A great day was had by all and we are truly thankful for their AMAZING support. Here’s to next year’s charity tournament!!!Continue reading →
Wendy Brunt’s 30KM Quadrathlon challenge
Our thanks go to Wendy Brunt who after being diagnosed with breast cancer just last year and only 30 weeks after treatment, finished a 30KM Quadrathlon (2 km swim -100 lengths, a 5 KM horse ride, a 7KM run AND a 16KM cross country bike ride all on the SAME DAY) in aid of the Pink Ribbon Foundation raising over £1,000 to support others affected by the disease!
Wendy fully appreciated the care that she received whilst going through treatment, from hospital staff, family and friends and realises that not everyone is so lucky and it was this empathy that spurred her on to take on the challenge and raise awareness and money.
We are extremely grateful for her support and in awe of her achievement. If you are able to support her fundraising, please take a look at her Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Wendy-Brunt1?utm_campaign=lc_frp_share_transaction_fundraiser_page_donation_received_-_nth_donation&utm_content=1bbbc500-37e9-4cdd-94bf-ef12a099513e&utm_medium=email&utm_source=postoffice&utm_term=1559920718432Continue reading →

Our very own Lisa Allen jumps 13,000ft to support those affected by breast cancer
After two failed attempts Lisa Allen, Head of Corporate Partnerships, PR and Events at the Pink Ribbon Foundation finally managed to complete her charity skydive on the 28 April in aid of the Foundation. Having convinced a small team from corporate partner Valspar Paint UK, plus upcycler Lynne Lambourne and TV carpenter and presenter Wayne Perrey to join her (amazing powers of persuasion), the team bravely skydived 13,000ft to raise awareness and money for those affected by breast cancer. The team have between them raised over £6,000 for the charity, which makes all the nerves worth it. Our thanks go to all of the instructors at Hinton Sky Diving Centre who got everyone down safely and inspired such confidence and calm, making it a truly memorable experience for all the participants and to Kimberley at Skyline for all of the support and organising in the lead up to the day. Biggest thanks must go to the wonderful people who jumped in aid of the Pink Ribbon Foundation, to those who cheered and supported on the day and to everyone who has made a donation to one of the fundraising pages to support their FUNdraising efforts! You are all fabulous!
If you want to enjoy the same exhilarating feeling of a skydive – flying through the clouds from over 10,000ft at up to 120 mph – then why not jump for our charity?! This incredible challenge will give you the biggest adrenaline rush you could ever imagine as you soar through the air knowing that you have helped raised invaluable funds for the Pink Ribbon Foundation. The tandem jump is the most popular of all skydives, it requires just 30 minutes training before you are strapped to your fully qualified BPA instructor who does all the hard work so you can enjoy the ride!

Watsonians Rugby Club
Thank you to everyone at the Watsonians Rugby Club for raising an amazing £600 for the Pink Ribbon Foundation during their recent charity Ladies Lunch. The pre-match lunches are normally attended by men, so they decided to give the Ladies the chance to have some fun during the last home game of the season on the 2nd March. Many small local businesses attended the fundraising event so there were plenty of opportunities to browse and shop before sitting down to a delicious three course meal. There was also a raffle and some fun games held during the afternoon. We thank them for their wonderful support, which will make a difference to those affected by breast cancer.Continue reading →
