Fabulous Family Fun Day supports Breast Care

Fun Day 6 Sept 2015

Families turned out to enjoy a fantastic sunny day at the Griff and Coton Sports Club on Sunday 6th September to support Breast Care.

ASDA Nuneaton and George Eliot Hospital organised this fun day out to help raise awareness of breast cancer and to raise funds to support ASDA's Tickled Pink campaign and the George Eliot Hospital Breast Care Unit. Over £800 was raised during the event.

Nuneaton and Bedworth Mayor, Barry Longden opened the event alongside his wife Mayoress Joan. Marcus Jones MP also came along to lend his support for this fundraising event which raised over £800 to support breast cancer initiatives in the local community.

Fairground rides, inflatable fun, dance performances, an outstanding young singer, craft demonstrations, food, health advice, Warwickshire Fire Service and other stalls were available for everyone to enjoy.

The event was hosted by Anker Radio (1386am) who are the Mayor’s charity organisation alongside Maggie’s Memory (brain tumour research).

George Eliot Hospital and ASDA played a great game of football during the event. The action packed game resulted in a draw of 3 all. Well done to all involved.

The organisers would like to thank everyone involved on the day including brilliant young vocalist Hannah Daffern, aged 12, ACES Cheer leading and Dance Club and the many stall organisers who made the event a huge success.

George Eliot Hospital Fundraising Coordinator, Jean Whittaker MBE said: "I would like to thank everyone that gave up their time to help raise money for a very important cause and also make the Fun Day such a wonderful occasion."

"I would also like to especially thank all of the staff at ASDA Nuneaton and Hinckley and our own staff at the George Eliot Hospital who volunteered on the day."
