Dinner for the Lavender Trust

Ettington Chase, near Stratford-upon-Avon filled up with supporters and friends of the Lavender Trust, a breast cancer support and information group for younger women. Each year, 8,000 women under the age of 50 are diagnosed with breast cancer, and the Lavender Trust is the only fund in the UK dedicated to addressing their particular needs and concerns. The Trust was set up to support younger women, who often feel isolated because the disease is much less common in the under 50s (80 per cent of breast cancer occurs in women over the age of 50). For more information about the Trust visit www.breastcancercare.org.uk or phone the the Breast Cancer Care helpline on 0808 800 6000.
