BREAST CANCER NOW'S WEAR IT PINK DAY -
Friday 19th October 2018
People see me and they don’t see breast cancer.
On the outside, I look healthy and well, so the mental and physical ravages of the disease go unnoticed. However, on the inside I live in fear of another and final diagnosis.
Day after day, 24/7, I'm playing Russian Roulette.
With 50,000 women being diagnosed each year with breast cancer, it’s the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women living in the UK. Sadly, one in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in their life. As well as women, 350 men in the UK are diagnosed each year. We need to continue striving towards a cause: to stop men and women dying by the year 2050 but researchers and scientists can only hope to achieve this through donations.
So, let’s try to stop the fear and give future generations the chance to live fearlessly instead.
I’m not asking for sympathy or niceties. All I ask is that on Friday 19th October, you wear something or everything pink and pop into Queen Anne’s Place in leafy Bush Hill Park. We’re hoping to have turned the shopping parade pink too!
Last year we had a blast and raised just over a £1000 but with your help, we can make it bigger and better this time.
You can find us there between 9am and 5pm.
People of Enfield, please make a note of the date in your diary now.
Come by for a cuppa at our hub, Stantons Coffee, a chin wag and a catch up, soak up the ‘pink’ atmosphere, do some shopping and kindly leave a donation in one of the Breast Cancer Now collection boxes, which will be in most or all of the shops and businesses in Queen Anne's Parade for the week commencing 15th October.
I and thousands of others would really appreciate it.
Feel free to share this post!
Thank you! 💋
PS. For those of you who've already expressed an interest in helping out in the organisation of the event and on the day itself, I'll be messaging you later 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
Evening everyone. A quick update for FITNESS IN THE PARK people.
This coming Tuesday, the 18th, the session will be at the usual time of 7.30pm. I appreciate that it will be dark by 8pm so we'll still meet by the exercise machines (Southbury Road entrance is closer) and then move to the Lincoln Road side of the park towards the end of the session, where there is street lighting.
I've been informed that the park will remain unlocked for the evening - can you please confirm that is the case Carole as I believe the notice board says the park closes at 7.45pm?
This is also as good a time as any to ask whether you'd be agreeable to the session taking place at an earlier time of 7pm? Feel free to comment below.
In the meantime, I will keep you informed of an any alternative arrangements or venue for our sessions.
Please also note that there will be NO session on Tuesday, the 25th September.
Thank you! ... See MoreSee Less
Here’s me, looking into the future with a positive outlook but with a smidgen of trepidation.
I’m looking forward to my birthday on 11th September 2019, and then in 2020, in 2021, 2022, and so on...and so on.....
My birthday has never meant so much. It’s not just another milestone; it’s another year of living, breathing and walking this earth🌎
It’s a blessing💫
I don’t just exist, I live✨
I take no one and nothing for granted🧡
I worship the sun, the moon and the stars ⭐️
I look up to the sky and I take a deep breath.
HAPPY FECKING BIRTHDAY to me today and for many, many years to come 🎂 💃🏻🥂🎉🌟
