SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF COCKERMOUTH & DISTRICT


As October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many of the club’s activities were based around this. Once again, shops and businesses in the town were invited to decorate their windows in pink and many of them joined in. President Ros chose the winners who were, Banks Ironmongers and The Sweetie Jar.

The speaker at the first meeting was Melanie Gill, a senior radiographer with the North Cumbria Hospital Trust. She spoke about the developments in breast cancer diagnosis. New machines to scan breasts are now less uncomfortable for the ladies and the results are immediate as no x-ray plates are involved. The new scans are very precise and can be sliced thinly, so that any abnormalities are found sooner. She demonstrated this with a sliced loaf. Members were also able to pass round an artificial breast to check for lumps. Melanie stressed that all women should examine their breasts regularly and always attend for mammograms when called. There were many questions from members before President Ros gave a vote of thanks.


Another event was a very successful Pink Rock Party held at Braithwaite Institute. Guests, most of whom were wearing something pink, enjoyed a two-course supper, entertainment from the All Saints’ Community Rock Squad and dancing to the Rocking Relics. Just over £1,000 was raised for breast cancer charities.

There is also an informal coffee morning on the second Monday of the month, at the Lakes Home Centre in Cockermouth at 10.30am. Why not come along to that, we don’t discuss business we just chat!
