 Warley Ladies ‘Walk the Walk,’ Raise a Huge Total for Breast Cancer Awareness

DATE: Will be calculated from "Release Start Date" field.

​On Thursday, 9 May, a group of women took over Warley to raise money for breast cancer awareness.

A total sum raised was £1542.04, the most ever raised at Warley in a single day. That is just an amazing response for sucha good cause on a disease that touches so many directly as well as indirectly.

Over £610 was raised by selling roses with a bake sale and donations.
 
Jo Lovett was the winner of the bra cake. Lovett seemed very pleased and surprised.  A big thank you to the Warley restaurant for making such a beautiful cake.
 
All the helpers were stunned just how quickly the homemade cakes went.  Everyone started early in the morning collecting cakes and flowers, but due to demand of the groaning table it was quickly stripped bare and there was nothing left by 1:15 p.m., even the ‘casualty’ cake pieces went – one for a £10 donation. Within the first 15 minutes, trays of cakes were leaving the tables for hungry teams.  All the cakes looked fantastic all decorated with pink ribbon and wrapped in cellophane. 
 
Approximately 70 spare roses were bought to sell on the day and all of those were gone by lunchtime, many more could have been sold.
 
"I can't thank everyone enough for all their help and support. Jude and I collected the flowers from the wholesaler at 6 a.m. that morning, transported them to Warley and then we had a small army and production line going on flowers and cakes and to have everything complete by 9:30 a.m. was amazing.  You are a fantastic team to work with and thank you so much for all your help, it’s been a blast," said  Jayne Miles, director, IT.

On Saturday 11th May the 'Moonwalker' ladies dressed as Princess Leia and took to the streets of London to walk over 13 miles... 
 
What is even more impressive is with the combined efforts from the Warley and Dunton Pink Day's plus other fundraising efforts the ladies have now raised nearly £9500 for breast cancer as part of the moonwalk team! 
 
CONGRATULATIONS LADIES!!!
