This event is hosted by local singer Sarah-Jayne who is having her own personal experience with Breast Cancer and is doing everything she can to raise awareness and funds for Macmillan and the wonderful work they do.

There will be a raffle and live music but more is needed! Please come forward if you would be willing to give some of your time to perform on the day or to donate prizes to make the raffle something reall special.

Thank you.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and can affect both women and men. Macmillan Cancer Support is encouraging people to be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. It is important to get anything that is unusual for you checked by your GP. The earlier breast cancer is treated, the more successful treatment is likely to be.

Some of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer include:
• a lump in the breast
• a change in the size or shape of the breast
• dimpling of the skin or thickening in the breast tissue
• a nipple that’s turned in (inverted)
• a rash (like eczema) on the nipple
• discharge from the nipple
• swelling or a lump in the armpit
• pain or discomfort in the breast that doesn’t go away.

If you are living with breast cancer, are a friend, relative or carer of someone who is and you need information and support, visit www.macmillan.org.uk/information-and-support/breast-cancer or call the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 00 00.
