11 months ago
Friday 3 November saw 200 people get together at the Hilton, Liverpool One for Clatterbridge Cancer Charity’s Amazing Women Against Cancer Event.
Hosted by Radio City’s Leanne Campbell, the event kicked off with a welcome from Mayor of Liverpool Joanne Anderson who shared her own experience of breast cancer and the care provided at Clatterbridge.
Guests then enjoyed lunch before hearing from an inspirational panel of women about the fantastic work of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre followed by a glittering fashion show sponsored by John Lewis.
Leanne kept guests entertained with prizes up for grabs from John Lewis along with a stunning necklace donated by Wongs Jewellers, before speaking to Cody Gapare, founder of C-Lash, along with Liz Morgan, Claire Bennett and Jessica Hale from The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.
The panel spoke about the strong ethos at Clatterbridge of ‘treating the person – not just the cancer’ along with the range of services which support health and wellbeing, along with the impact cancer has on people’s lives.
Finally, the day was rounded off by nine remarkable women, taking to the runway to model three looks each from the winter collection at John Lewis Liverpool One. Each of the models has received treatment at the Centre so it was a truly special fashion show to be part of.
The event raised a massive £20,000 for the Charity to support projects like the Clatterbridge in the Community initiative which takes cancer treatment to people’s homes and the workplace.
Katrina Bury, Head of Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, said:
“It was fantastic to see the return of Amazing Women Against Cancer after three years away. There was a fabulous atmosphere in the room and so many people told us that they came away inspired to do even more for local people with cancer.
“The total raised will mean so much to local people with cancer and their families. Thank you to all of the Amazing Women who took to the stage and the runway for Clatterbridge today, to everyone who attended and to John Lewis and Wongs for making the day possible.”
