Pink Coffee Morning in aid of Cancer Focus


CHC hosted a pink coffee morning, where all donations were made to Cancer Focus NI. A great selection of pink baked goods were on offer, with a grand total of £200 raised for the charity.

Cancer Focus NI help cancer patients and their loved ones by providing one-to-one and group support to help deal with the diagnoses.  They offer a range of therapies and activities that can be tailored to meet specific needs of each patient, as well as holding many different fundraising evening in order to raise awareness.

Our Coffee Morning donations will go towards helping researchers at QUB discover an alternative treatment to irreversible surgery for women with the mutated BRCA1 gene. It’s these women who have a greatly increased risk of breast (85%) and ovarian cancer (40%). 

This year the ­ALL money raised in aid of Cancer Focus NI, will be used to help fund the next important stage of the research – clinical trials with women at risk. This research has the potential to make an enormous difference to the lives of many local women, so that’s why the money raised is so important. 

Staff at CHC baked pink edible goods and dressed in pink for the occasion. It is a really fun way to bring everyone from the company together and, most importantly, it allowed us to do our bit to help raise funds and awareness for cancer patients and their families. 

We will definitely need to repeat this soon!
