Liverpool Life Sciences
Accelerator tops out!
THE Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen
University Hospital's R Charity is hoping to turn Liverpool 'pink'
for the month of October with the support of local comedian Pauline Daniels,
who celebrates 3 years in remission this year (2016). October is breast
cancer awareness month, and in the lead up to the month, R Charity has joined
forces with Pauline Daniels to help raise awareness and funds for the Royal's
The Pink Party campaign is being kicked off with Pauline and
Capital FM calling for the people of Liverpool to register and host their very
own Pink Party, in support of the breast unit appeal. The funds raised
will enable the Royal Liverpool University Hospital to buy 3 new mammography
units, including 2 with the latest tomosynthesis technology for the breast unit.
The equipment will be able to help diagnose breast cancers earlier, when
treatment is most effective, whilst reassuring most patients and improving the
outcomes for women facing this challenge. Pauline is passionate about raising
awareness and much needed funds for the breast unit, and feels that her
involvement is vital to help spread the word about breast cancer and to help
improve lives of patients in the future.
Pauline Daniels said:- "I'm backing the Royal’s Pink Party
campaign, to send a message to women (and men) highlighting the importance of
checking their breasts and knowing the things to look out for. I challenge you
to hold a Pink Party to raise funds for the brand new 3D mammography machines
that will be vital in saving and improving more lives in the future. When I was
a girl, a woman with breast cancer would lose her breast, her life or both.
Today we can make a real difference, so come on girls and boys; it can affect us
all, let's make the experience better for cancer patients now and cancer
patients to come."
As part of the Pink Party campaign a grand Pink Party afternoon tea is taking
place on 12 October 2016, at 30 James Street Hotel. Survivors, relatives and
fundraisers will join together to celebrate by turning pink for breast cancer
awareness month. The Pink Party campaign hopes to encourage, both men and women,
to take part, and the event at 30 James Street promises lots of fun.
Entertainment will include a pink afternoon tea, live performances from
'James the singer', beauty treatments from Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar
and a raffle with lots of prizes. Each person that attends will be entered into
a prize draw to win a luxury overnight stay at the Hotel.
Aimee Clare, senior community fundraiser said:- "We are extremely grateful
to Pauline Daniels for her support for this year's Pink Party campaign, and to
everyone that is thinking about registering to take part. We couldn’t dream of
raising the money that we need to invest into lifesaving equipment for the new
breast unit without the support of local people, organisations and places.
