Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now Merger

Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now Merger

Merger with Breast Cancer Care

Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now are uniting to create one breast cancer charity. 

We’re excited to announce Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now are uniting to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer. From April 2019, we’ll be the UK’s first comprehensive breast cancer charity.

From research to care, our new charity will have people affected by breast cancer at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we’ll have the ability to carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign even more effectively for better services and care.

By coming together we’ll be stronger and speak with one clear voice for everyone affected by breast cancer — now and in the future. With our combined passion, energy, expertise, funds and networks, we’ll make greater progress in more effective ways.

Together, we are united in the aim that, by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live, and everyone receives the support they need to live well now.

Mad March Hare Quiz Night

Mad March Hare Quiz Night

The annual Mad March Hare quiz kicks off fundraising

On 1st November 17 teams hopped over to the Mad March Hare annual quiz night which was held at Swindon Town Football Club launching fund raising activities for the 2019 event with a total of £854.

The Mad March Hare team also took the opportunity to announce that the total raised at the 2018 event was £9,636.

The room was packed with friendly competitive quizzers and Quiz Master Bill Gibbons put the teams through their paces with rounds that included quiz favourites History, Geography, Sport and Film.  Everyone enjoyed the popular ploughman’s supper which has now become a tradition with Mad March Hare Quizers.

I attended the evening with my husband and a group of friends. It was the first time we have gone to a quiz night and although we were not very good we had a good laugh and the evening was made better as I won a raffle prize of a voucher for Carluccio’s Restaurant.new attendee Emma Macardle

The winning team was ‘Usual Suspects’ and the runners up were ‘Hell Toupe’.

We would like to thank the teams who took part as well as the many local companies who generously donated raffle prizes.

Registration is now open for the 2019 Mad March Hare event, put the date in your diary, Sunday 24th March 2019.
