‘Girls Night Out’ in aid of Ulster Cancer Foundation

Co. Down woman Ciara McKevitt is calling all ladies for a ‘Girls Night Out’, to help raise awareness and vital funds for Ulster Cancer Foundation’s ‘Think Pink for Breast Cancer Campaign’. On Saturday 12th May 2012, ladies can enjoy a girlie night out at Bellini’s, Newry from 7.30pm until late for only £10.

UCF is a local charity committed to tackling cancer by supporting cancer research, providing services for cancer patients and their families and by educating people on how they can reduce their risk of the disease.

The night will include a breast awareness talk given by a member of UCF’s Cancer prevention team. Ladies can enjoy drinks promotions, followed by an Ann Summers Party, UK Action Boys (Male Strip Act) then dance the night way with Discostyle. Tickets for this fabulous girlie night are only £10 and can be purchased in Bellinis Newry, Tan City Railway Avenue or Pole Fitness, Boat Street Newry.

Breast Cancer is now the most common form of cancer in women in Northern Ireland with over 1,100 women diagnosed with the disease each year but survival rates are steadily improving. Today, there are around 10,000 women with a diagnosis of breast cancer living in Northern Ireland.

Rosie Hassin, Community Fundraising Officer, UCF said, “At UCF we understand that there is little that causes as much anxiety and stress as a diagnosis of cancer. There are currently 55,000 families in Northern Ireland living with cancer and around 10,700 people are newly diagnosed each year. Our role is to make that time of extreme stress a little more bearable by providing a range of care services for cancer patients.”

For further information on this or other UCF events, please contact Rosie Hassin, UCF on 028 9068 0759 or email rosiehassin@ulstercancer.org
