    On Thursday 17th October 2019 at 7pm it will be the 6th Breast Cancer Fashion Show at the Grand Arcade where twenty breast cancer patients will model clothes available in the Grand Arcade. The show will help raise funds for Addenbrooke’s to support those with breast cancer.

    Over the years, funds raised from the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal has helped renovate quiet rooms, buy specialist ultrasound scanners, support cutting-edge research programme to help make treatment more targeted and effective. In 2016, the show raised £10,465.00 with the help of all our generous sponsors and supporters. This went towards the purchase of the Addenbrooke’s Breast Unit Specimen X ray equipment. With this equipment, biopsies can be performed in less time and to higher safety standards. This means less distress for patients while they undergo a biopsy procedure and, at the same time, allow more patients to be diagnosed more quickly. In 2017, the show raised £8,157.80 and in 2018 it raised an incredible £11,125.57.

    The show is run by two of our supporters:

    Natalie Emuss

    Mum of two, Natalie Emuss is a dedicated supporter of the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal. Natalie and her husband Paul have been raising funds for the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal since 2014 and they continue to fundraise to help make a difference for future patients. Natalie has organised annual Fashion Show fundraising events since 2014 raising £38,000.00 so far. Since 2016 she has collaborated with Jennifer Mason to successfully hold larger fashion shows at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge.

    Jennifer Mason

    Jenny teamed up with Natalie Emuss, utilising all her retail know-how, to create and produce the show. Models who are either undergoing treatment or have survived breast cancer, walk down the catwalk in pieces lent from several passionate retail neighbours that Jenny has brought onboard. The show is incredibly inspiring and is an annual highlight within the centre.
