A coffee morning raised hundreds of pounds for a local breast cancer support charity at a Burnham-On-Sea church on Saturday (April 7th).
Becky Stockwell, Tori Pope, Victoria Derman, Holly Macbeth and Lisa Watts are planning to take part in a night-time fundraising walk in London on 12th May, walking 13.8 miles in their bras in support of Somerset Breast Cancer Now.
And, to raise awareness of the event and fundraise, they held a coffee morning at Burnham-On-Sea’s Baptist Church in College Street.
Three hours of serving up teas, coffees and cakes raised a grand total of £251.29 for the charity.
“This was amazing, and we thank you for supporting our fundraising event for upcoming Moonwalk,” Holly told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
“Everyone inspired us to keep training and we will be thinking of you all on the big night. You never fail to amaze us with your generosity and support.”
Their JustGiving fundraising page is available here.
She added: “On 12th May we will be taking part in the Half moon Walk the walk challenge for Breast Cancer Now consisting of 13.8 miles starting at midnight wearing decorative bra’s and we will be pounding the streets of London all for our amazing charity!”
“This is a charity close to our heart, as you may or may not be aware we are members of the Somerset Breast Cancer Now group which has now been active for over 21 years, to date we have raised over £515,000.”
“Holly has previously done the Full Marathon and the half marathon walk 3 times! One of these walks she walked with her late mother Christine and former chair of the group so its a very emotional event for Holly to take part in again. So after much convincing from the rest of the girls we have decided that this will be our challenge for 2018.”
“Its an amazing experience being surrounded by thousands of men and women all coming together to do this and to raise a huge amount of vital money for this charity to continue the research into breast cancer.”
The team will be wearing hoodies sponsored by local company Somerlap.
