BOOT OUT BREAST CANCER

On the 25 March 2017 Boot Out Breast Cancer will be raising money to buy a number of new diagnostic machines for the Warrington and Halton NHS Hospitals Trust by holding ‘A Night at Studio 54’ themed ball at the Principal Hotel in Manchester.

The ball will be attended by patrons Alan Shearer CBE, the Right Honourable Andy Burnham MP and Professor Andrew Baildam and a variety of special guests will be performing throughout the evening.

The charity is welcoming members to the prestigious event by offering a 10% discount off the ticket price (‘GOLD’ tables of 10 guests are £1200 or ‘VIP’ tables of 10 guests are £1500 which includes access to the VIP after party until 3am with further refreshments).

Boot Out Breast Cancer was set up in 2010 by Debbie Dowie who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Many women receive diagnosis each year and the team at Boot Out Breast Cancer want to make a difference.

Since the first event in November 2010, Boot Out Breast Cancer have raised over £650,000, which has all been spent on equipment in the North West. Equipment has been provided for The Royal Bolton NHS hospital, the Nightingale Centre NHS hospital in South Manchester, Thomas Linacre Breast Centre at Wrightington Wigan and Leigh NHS hospital, Leighton NHS hospital in Crewe, Chorley NHS hospital, the Broadgreen NHS hospital in Liverpool and the Paterson Institute next to the Christie.

Providing this equipment has allowed Boot Out Breast Cancer to make a tangible difference to people’s lives in the North West through the purchase of the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment for NHS hospitals, saving theatre time, anaesthetic and helping to give an early diagnosis which is key to saving lives.

Debbie Dowie, Founder said ‘We are committed to fundraising and to making sure that every penny raised is spent on some much needed equipment in the NHS. Your help has already helped save lives in Bolton, Chorley, Wigan, Manchester and elsewhere through better screening and early diagnosis.’
