Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer has teamed up with Marco Pierre White Steakhouse at The Cube to hold a Mothering Sunday Lunch. The charity, which has raised over £1million for Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital, will take over the restaurant on Sunday 30 March 2014 for an afternoon of food, fun and festivities.
For £39.95 (adults) and £19.95 (children, 3-12 years), guests will enjoy a welcome drink on the 25th floor, followed by a three-course meal prepared by the talented Marco Pierre White Steakhouse chefs. Whilst taking in the stunning views, families will hear live music from jazz singer Trevor T, who will perform throughout the day.
Added to this, all mums will receive a special gift – perfect for anyone who has forgotten to buy a present – and there will be a chance to win a selection of prizes. The event has been designed to take the stress out of planning a Mother’s Day to remember.
Spaces are limited so people are advised to book early: https://ladiesfightingbreastcancer.eventbrite.co.uk
All money from the LFBC Mother’s Day Lunch will go towards the charity’s £1 Million Appeal. Working with the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer aims to raise £1million to fund ‘soft services’ that go beyond NHS means. In June 2015, the Breast Unit will move to a new location and as part of this, the charity will fund four new rooms set to transform the experience of patients, their families and the medical teams at the hospital.
Having already funded over £1million worth of equipment, turning the QE’s Breast Unit into a ‘centre of excellence’, this new £1 Million Appeal will see the introduction of a new patients’ lounge, not-for-profit hair salon, wig-fitting, bra-fitting, mastectomy room all on site at the hospital. The money will also help to fund another mobile mammogram trailer, which will take breast screening out into the community. The Appeal launched back in October 2011, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, at a special event hosted by charity Patron, Lord Digby Jones. Since then, Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer has hosted events including a golf day, polo match, Christmas brunch, shopping evening and much more, to help raise money for the cause. In addition to corporate and individual donations and fundraising efforts.
People can support the £1 Million Appeal by texting ‘LFBC12’ to 70070 to donate £5, as well as fundraising in their workplace or by doing a sponsored activity.
