Fundraising Event On International Women’s Day

Christine Nichols, executive chairwoman of Unity In Community, attended a fundraising lunch for Lady McAdden today, to celebrate International Women’s Day at the Holiday Inn Hotel, Southend-on-Sea.

Christine was accompanied by Atlantic Pacific Group’s Jayne Wakeling, Kerry Borg, Tracey Smith, and Julie Curran, along with friends and family, who witnessed the event’s fantastic guest speaker Gillian Milland OBE.

The Lady McAdden Trust was named in honour of Lady Dorothy McAdden and opened the UK’s first breast screening unit at Southend Hospital in 1976. With the NHS now providing breast screening services, the trust has evolved its services to support the early detection of breast cancer, through advice, education, and assisting with breast pain and breast health.

Christine is a trustee of the Lady McAdden charity, and is always keen to raise funds and awareness,.

One in seven women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, and every year about 55,000 women are diagnosed with the disease in the UK. The cancer is more common in women who are aged 50 and over, but can affect men too.
