Awareness (BRA) Day
International BRA Day
Keeping Abreast are proud to have supported International Breast Reconstruction Day this year.
Initially developed in Canada and the USA BRA Day is an initiative that promotes education, awareness and access for women considering post mastectomy breast reconstruction, all things that we as a charity are also keen to promote.
Norwich City Council and the Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery have both supported this fantastic occasion by lighting up the City Hall and the Castle bright pink for the evening to help us raise awareness of breast cancer reconstruction.
Supported by a Pink Parade
A big crowd turned out to join the parade and show their support, the group wearing pink met at the Norwich Castle where they begin the short walk to the City Hall waving flags and balloons on their way whilst enjoying the delightful sight of seeing two iconic Norwich buildings in their fabulous pink state.
Donations are very welcome to support us, you can text ABRE45 £10 to 70070, adjust the amount as you wish to suit your desired donation, or donate online at uk.virginmoneygiving.com and search for Keeping Abreast.
