22nd August: From Baroness Delyth Morgan - Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign
Dear Margaret, Jane and everyone involved with Boobs & Brass, I was delighted and proud to hear from Colin this morning that with the donation received from the Mansell Summer Charity Ball you have surpassed the £100,000 mark in your fundraising for Breast Cancer Campaign. You are a truly remarkable and talented group of women who we at Breast Cancer Campaign are so fortunate to have as supporters. The money you have raised that has been spent on our world class breast cancer research has and will continue to save and change lives. Having people like you who are willing to stand side by side with us in this pursuit is so needed and appreciated. I know Colin is working on organising a research visit in the near future where we can bring you closer to the type of work you are funding but I and everyone at Breast Cancer Campaign wanted to mark this truly phenomenal moment by saying thank you for what you have done and what you continue to do. Best wishes
Delyth Morgan Chief Executive
