Fund-raiser keeps her promise

Evesham Editorial 1st Jun, 2019   0

A STAGGERING £40,000 was raised for the Worcestershire Breast Unit in memory of county breast cancer campaigner who died of secondary breast cancer in October

Kate Butler and best friend Susie Coleman set up Breast Unit Events to hold fund-raising events in support of the Worcestershire Breast Unit.

Kate and Susie organised the last Snow Ball in 2016 which raised £22,000 for the Unit.

Following Kate’s passing, Susie honoured the decision she and Kate had made to hold the third Snow Ball this May, which she did at the Bank House Hotel with the support of another close friend Jenny Tyler.

“I am still in total shock about how much we have raised. My initial target was £30,000 so to raise a further £10,000 on top of this has just blown my mind. I fulfilled my promise to Kate and I hope I have made her proud,” she said.

Fiona Charny, chair of the Worcestershire Breast Unit Haven charity said: “Kate and Susie were an absolute team together and Susie was determined to do this for Kate.  We are a tiny charity and a sum like this makes a massive difference to the services and support we can offer to people in Worcestershire with breast cancer.

“Thank you to Susie and Jenny for organising this and to everyone that donated towards this brilliant amount they raised,” she added.
