Charities’ News ACT Celebrates Tenth Year of Appeal to Beat Breast Cancer


Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT), the dedicated charity for Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals, is this year celebrating its


tenth annual Pink Rose Appeal to raise additional funds for breast cancer care and treatment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. Started in 2004, the Pink Rose Appeal has now raised over £450,000 for the Cambridge Breast Unit and Cambridge Breast Cancer Research Unit.


As in previous years, ACT is inviting people to host Pink Rose parties during October – breast cancer awareness month – and ask their guests to make a donation to the cause. Anything goes, from coffee mornings to dinner parties to cocktail soirees. It’s easy: people are simply asked to get together with friends, family or colleagues, have fun and raise much-needed funds to support breast cancer care.


In addition, this year’s appeal features new and exciting initiatives to make it even easier for people to get involved, including “Boob Tube” collection pots, jewellery, pin badges and rose bushes.


Michelle Gray, Head of Community Fundraising at ACT said: “We invite everyone to get involved in the Pink Rose Appeal this year. It’s so easy to take part. If you’re unable to hold a Pink Rose party, then you could purchase some of our exclusive jewellery or request ‘Boob Tube’ collection pots in which to save your £1 coins for the cause. Every extra penny raised for the Pink Rose Appeal is so important, helping to improve care for breast cancer patients and making a real difference to ordinary people, now and in the future.”
