Our supporters are truly magnificent people who help us make sure that we can continue to be there for anyone with breast cancer, when they need us.

We're sharing stories of the weird and wonderful ways they have fundraised for Breast Cancer Care.

Kathyrn and her friends dressed as vikings

Swim like a Viking

Kathryn Taylor and her friends and family have taken part in the Saundersfoot New Year's Day Swim 10 times to fundraise for Breast Cancer Care.

They dress up in a variety of costumes for the event – they've been jellyfish, weather reports and Olympic medals.

It was the year that they dressed as Vikings that caught everyone's eye, and Kathryn and her group ended up on the front page of the Western Mail.

In memory of his wife who he lost to breast cancer in 2003, Mark Weston has been raising money for Breast Cancer Care.

As a taxi driver, he’s brightened up his taxi runs by dying his hair pink and committing to keep it for a whole year.

On 21 April, he went even further and rode around town dressed in drag, delighting the passengers in his hometown of Ayr.

Dean at one of his events

20 events for 20 years

It's been 20 years since Dean’s mum died from secondary breast cancer.

To mark the milestone and in memory of his mum, Dean’s recently completed 20 different sporting events as a member of Team Breast Cancer Care.

Dean said ‘It’s not just the events themselves that are a bit scary but knowing that it’s a lot to put my body through, too. There’s no hiding from the training, I can’t take a week off! Remembering why I’m doing this will get me through.’

Getting glittered

Debbie was diagnosed with breast cancer on Valentine’s Day, and recently completed chemotherapy after having a mastectomy and reconstruction.

Her family and friends helped her to raise over £1,000 for Breast Cancer Care with a whole host of events taking place at a salon in Haslemere.

There was a raffle, a charity back wax and haircuts, and a cake stall. Debbie also took part in a glitterthon, which involved her covering herself and her newly bald head in glitter while taking donations.

Big Fat Pink Party

Big Fat Pink Party

The staff and residents at The Lindsay Care Home in Dorset held a ‘Big Fat Pink Party’ on Friday 2 November. As well as hosting raffles and selling pink cakes and champagne, everyone at the home wore something pink – from wigs to legwarmers!

The Home Manager, Claudia Carvell, also braved the shave and shaved her head to help support those affected by breast cancer. She said, 'Raising money is a fantastic way not only to engage our residents in meaningful activities but also bring the community together for an amazing cause.'
