On Friday 23 October a few of the Anne Corder Recruitment team, plus guests, had the pleasure of attending the Charity Ladies Lunch in support of Peterborough City Hospital Breast Care Unit.
It made for a very welcome change to have a few hours out of the office at the Holiday Inn on a Friday afternoon – it’s safe to say we all felt very spoilt! Not to mention a little star struck too by special guests Strictly Come Dancing star, Ian Waite and Nicole Lawrence of X Factor fame.
The 280 ladies that attended were treated to a delicious meal, with a fantastic speech by Ian that had us all in stitches and a fabulous playlist sung by Nicole.
But, of course, all this was in support of a very worthy cause – raising funds for the Breast Care Unit at Peterborough City Hospital. Supporting women and men, the unit’s staff and facilities are hugely appreciated by so many in the city. Claire Hall, breast care nurse specialist at the unit, explained to all those who attended the emotional support, information, care and practical advice the unit provides to those diagnosed with breast cancer.
Such a fantastic event, organised beautifully by Carol Collier, was sure to be a success. And it certainly was, raising over £8,000 that will go towards new, cutting-edge equipment at the Breast Care Unit.
We would just like to say a big thank you to Carol for organising everything so perfectly and to the event’s sponsors:
