Established in 1997, they are a voluntary group who are raising funds and awareness for Breakthrough Breast Cancer in the Sutton Coldfield area. To date, they have raised over £700,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer research, their target is now £1million.

Breakthrough Sutton Coldfield raise these funds through the generosity of their friends, family and the local community, holding many types of events from Charity Balls and Christmas Faryes to Golf Days and Car Boot Sales.

If you would like to get involved then just contact them, they are all very lovely, and happy to help you get involved, or just chat.

How We Raised The Money

In our stores we keep a Breakthrough Breast Cancer tin for customers to donate into and they are bright pink so it’s hard to miss them too! Customers can also buy a badge to raise awareness for £1.00 which also goes into these tins.

During the Autumn of 2012 we also launched a Facebook campaign, offering to donate 25p for every like our page had, the total likes when the campaign closed were 547, which amounted to a total of £136.75.

Over Christmas we decided that we would also donated a percentage of the profits from our Santa’s Grotto, which amounted to £100.00 in total.

A donation from Legal and General was also gratefully received, which was £200.00 as shown in the photo above.

The Grand Total

All in all a grand total of £550.00 has been raised for Breakthrough Breast Cancer and we are happy to say that we will be working closely with the charity in the future, hopefully we can raise a lot more over time to help fight the disease and raise awareness too.
