Testimonials

“Thank you for the supply of harvest produce received towards our work from the children. We very much appreciate their help and support in this way and the food will be very useful to us in our ongoing work among the homeless, the elderly and needy families with whom we aer in contact. A letter of thanks is enclosed for the children.

Our children’s team would be happy to come into school to talk about the work of Birmingham City Mission. Please contact Sue Fearon, our Children’s Team Co-ordinator if you would like to discuss arrangements.

Thank you again for your help and support.”

“Breast Cancer Campaign’s “wear it pink”

Thank you to everyone at Wilkes Green Junior School for taking part in “wear it pink” in October 2006 and for raising 396.45. Please accept this letter and certificate as our official reciept. Our target for this year’s award winning event is 2.1 million, so with your help we will be closer to achieving this aim. Please keep checking our website www.wearitpink.co.uk for further updates and photos of the event.

“wear it pink” is a key part of our fundraising at Breast Cancer Campaign. Breast cancer research and the resulting benefits to patients have rapidly accelerated in the past two decades and you may be surprised to learn that some of the innovative treatments of today started in the laboratory 20 years ago. There are plenty of developments to be excited about. Earlier diagnosis and better treatment have led to breast cancer mortality rates falling by 20 percent since 1989 and around 80 percent of people diagnosed today will be alive in five years time. This is largely due to increased awareness of breast cancer, the introduction of the screening programme and the successes of breast cancer research leading to improved treatments that are now available. Without your help this would not be possible so thank you very much for your support.

We do hope you had fun taking part in “wear it pink” this year. Please make sure you put Friday, 26 October in your diary for 2007!”
