The area’s first breast cancer support group, Ribble Valley Breast Friends, held a fundraising launch eventthat raised £573, which will be put towards costs for the running of the group.
A cake sale, raffle, lucky dip and face and nail painting all helped add to the final total at the event, which was held at Grindleton Pavilion.
The group, which will meet at the same venue on Mondays from May 12th, aims to provide a relaxed environment for anyone who has been affected by breast cancer at any point in their lives to meet to chat and offer support to each other. There will also be talks from volunteers on a range of subjects including relaxation and emotional wellbeing.
