Shrewsbury resident, Sally Jamieson, held a Halloween Party to raise money for SaTH Charity’s Breast Cancer Fund and Fighting to Be Heard foundation.
Sally held the event in memory of her friend, Emily Roberts who died of secondary breast cancer in February 2022. The event raised £1,420.06 the money being split equally between the two charities. Sally wants to urge people to “check their pumpkins” as early detection can save lives. She has been running a Halloween event since 2016 and has raised over £12,000 for various charities.
The Halloween party was a fun packed event with a bar, wand making, bouncy castle, a disco, hot food, and lots more. Sally also ran a raffle with the prizes including a Christmas hamper, boozy hamper, an afternoon tea for two alongside lots of other prizes.
Mr Usman, Consultant Breast Surgeon said: “The dedication and hard work of Sally Jamieson in organising the Halloween party is deeply appreciated by all of us. Her commitment to raising both funds and awareness through this event makes a real difference to the lives of those affected by breast cancer. This contribution, in memory of Emily Roberts, is not only a significant support to SaTH Charity’s Breast Cancer Fund, but also a meaningful gesture in promoting early detection. We sincerely thank her for her ongoing efforts.”
