Ladies get tips on the way to better breast health

It was an evening when ladies learned all they needed to know about breast care.

More than 60 members and friends of Brigg area WI branches listened to talks given by John Lee, a health promotion officer, and Caroline Bradley, a consultant radiographer, both of whom are based in Hull.

Dorothy Fagge, a fundraiser, gave encouraging news about the machine for which she is raising money, and also the hopes for the future with marvellous research and findings.

Ariska Smith and her assistant, Sarah, were happy to measure ladies for properly-fitting bras and are specifically trained for such assistance.

Cherie Hardwick and Marilyn Lowther, from Brigg Cancer Support, were able to speak with people one-to-one.

On a lighter note, there was a competition for the best dressed bra, won by Beverley Pickersgill from Great Coates WI.

Some of the decorated bras were then donated to Evelyn’s Den in Doncaster, a bra-fitting shop, then to be forwarded to a breast care charity.

Collections towards the new machine raised £134.

Refreshments were provided and thanks must go to everyone who made the evening such an enjoyable and upbeat success.
