Crowborough model struts her stuff on the catwalk for breast cancer charity!

A Crowborough resident who served as a volunteer at the Centre for a number of years is set for an unforgettable day when she takes to the catwalk at the annual Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show in association with Comfort. The glamorous event takes place at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in London on Thursday 28 September.

Sheila Hatchwell, 69, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, will be sharing the stage with 31 other inspiring people who have also been diagnosed, to show that you can still look and feel amazing after breast cancer.

The event will celebrate the models while raising vital funds to support the 62,000 people who are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year. Breast Cancer Care aims to raise over £400,000 from the event, which will enable the charity to continue to provide care, support and information to anyone affected by breast cancer.

To purchase tickets for the Breast Cancer Care Show in association with Comfort visit: www.breastcancercare.org.uk/theshowlondon

Sheila has set up a Just Giving page under “Sheila Hatchwell”. All contributions will be gratefully received and put to good use.

Good Luck with the Show Sheila!

Visit of High Sheriff of East Sussex
 
Members of the CCA and staff at the Crowborough Centre were delighted to welcome Juliet Smith, High Sheriff of East Sussex, to the Centre on 18th January 2016. Mrs Smith enjoyed a guided tour of the Centre and learned how the Centre has become very popular with community groups and local businesses in the three and a half years since it opened. In discussions afterwards, there was time to reflect upon her observations throughout East Sussex on the value of centres like the Crowborough Centre to local communities.
