A mini afternoon tea was also on the menu at an event which collected £1,111 for the Breast Care Unit at the West Cumberland Hospital.
The Think Pink fundraising group gathered at Whitehaven’s Waterfront restaurant for fun, food and fundraising. Entertainment was provided by singer Cindy Hoten.
Since starting in 2009, Think Pink has raised around £31,000 for the unit by holding an annual fundraising event to promote breast cancer awareness.
Karen Ritson, a Think Pink organiser, said: “The events work really well. Because we are raising money for the Breast Care Unit we received a lot of support from people locally.
“Organising the October event can be hard work,” she added. “So we thought with this mini afternoon tea we could relax and enjoy ourselves!’’
The Think Pink fundraising group is Viv Foster, Janette McMean, Margaret Campbell, Melanie Parr, Karen Ritson, Louise Bowe, Jade Blair, Natalie Lewthwaite, Maria Walker, Claire Fisher, Natalie Bode and Terry Jenkinson.
They thanked Simon Haslam, owner of The Waterfront, Cindy, HT Gough & Co, and La Venue for their support.
