Community-spirited, Cheadle Hulme-based fashion boutique and showroom, Fuzzy Goose enlisted the help of four fabulous local models to highlight that start of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month here in Cheshire.
The gorgeous models dressed in every shade of pink imaginable to showcase their ensembles and pose with pink balloons in front of a glittering, pink, sequinned wall for Prevent Breast Cancer’s Pink Pix Campaign at The Alderley Edge Hotel.
Prevent Breast Cancer aim to ‘turn Instagram Pink’ with their #PinkPix campaign and Fuzzy Goose certainly got the (pink) ball rolling. The charity needs lots of eye-catching pink pictures to grab followers’ attention, stop them scrolling past and make them look, learn and thus raise awareness of breast cancer signs and symptoms. Awareness is KEY – early stage breast cancer is highly treatable.
Prevent Breast Cancer is a charity close to the hearts of Fuzzy Goose owners, friends and clients. Several customers are breast cancer survivors, some are currently undergoing treatment and Fuzzy Goose have spearheaded many fundraising events for the charity.
Indeed, there was a Fuzzy Goose fundraising fashion show planned for March this year - a sell-out as usual - but sadly this fell victim to the Covid lockdown, as have many charity events and fundraising initiatives. In the light of this, and to try and raise much needed funds and awareness (which have been hit so hard by Covid restrictions) the Fuzzy Goose girls put on Cheshire’s first ever Virtual Fashion Show for ladies to watch at leisure in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Jo Hoddes, co-owner of Fuzzy Goose, said: “We would like to say a big thank you to the models who donated their time to raise awareness for Prevent Breast Cancer’s Pink Pix Campaign. The charity helps to provide life-changing support for those living with the disease and help fund vital breast cancer research. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. One in eight women in the UK will face it in their lifetime”.
Let’s see YOUR pink pix and turn Instagram pink!
