The Boobie Bunch shave their heads for Cancer Care

On Sunday 20th September 2015 ‘The Boobie Bunch’ comprising of Becky Tucker, Lizzie Barker and Jill Fulker held a fund raising day in Sutton Benger. During the day they had a craft stall, BBQ, cake stall, raffle, bric a brac, water or wine stall, guess the name of the teddy and guess the amount of sweets in the jar.

The fundraising day culminated in Lizzie and Jill shaving their heads in support of Becky who is currently undergoing treatment at the existing RUH Oncology unit. The event was very well attended and supported by family, friends and neighbours. One of the main attractions was the raffle and this is where the trio would like to personally thank everyone for their very kind donations of raffle prizes or donations. The day raised a staggering £1000 and with additional sponsorship monies and their JustGiving pages the final amount will be over £3,600 with more still coming in! This amount far exceeds anything they had hoped to achieve.

The Boobie Bunch would like to thank the following local businesses for their support:

Chippenham: Morrisons, Sainsburys, The Wellesley Arms, Boots, Maddisons, Paprika, Beechfield House, Whitehall Garden Centre, Leekes, The Chocolate Shop, Sukh Beauty, Waterstones, Avon Cosmetics

Corsham: Book Shop, Bliss Beauty, Head Office, The Salon, The Café, All the Pretty Things, VLP Italian Restaurant, The Methuen Arms, The Fruit Shop, Theodora’s, Daisy Chain, The Deli, Green Ginger and Toby the Butchers.

Many raffle prizes were also gratefully received from family and friends.

As this event was such an achievement Becky, Lizzie and Jill plan to hold future fundraising events so keep an eye out for more information coming soon.

Well done ladies – what an amazing achievement!
