Vanessa Fox, partner and head of family law at hlw Keeble Hawson, has struck the right chord with attendees at a festive event in Sheffield to support Breast Cancer Care.
Vanessa, who has previously had breast cancer, gave a bible reading at the charity’s Carols by Candlelight fundraiser at Sheffield Cathedral. The concert featured musical performances from local school choirs and the Military Wives Choir from RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.
The annual event is expected to raise £8,000, which will support the 10,500 people currently living with breast cancer in South Yorkshire.
Vanessa, who has been a volunteer for Breast Cancer Care since 2015, said: “Breast Cancer Care is the only UK wide charity providing specialist support services to women facing breast cancer every day and works tirelessly to support those living with it and beyond it. The Carols by Candlelight atmosphere was wonderful and attendees were very generous.”
Sarah Herrett, community fundraising manager for Breast Cancer Care, said: “Many thanks to Vanessa and all the participants who made the evening a great success.
“Monies raised help us to continue our vital programmes which include helping people to find their new normal after treatment, supported by our specialist team. We also match those undergoing treatment with volunteers who have undergone breast cancer and bring partners of people undergoing treatment together while offering help to friends and family.”
