West End Centre hosts a Breast Cancer Now Fundraising event

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

We would like to start with a big thank you to everyone who purchased a ticket and came to the event yesterday, those who donated buns and prizes, those who donated money and finally those who donated their time to ensure the event was a success. Volunteers really do make a difference!

The day started with our Yorkshire Man Dan running a session on how to take cuttings, using Rosemary from the allotment, not only that Dan shared his tried and tested recipe for making his own cutting compost. Thanks to those who took part and let us know how your cutting gets on.

Dan's Cutting Compost Recipe

3 parts compost

1 part sand

1 part grit

Everyone then tucked into an afternoon tea including sandwiches, cakes, buns, quiche, sausage rolls, scones and a cuppa. Yummmm.

The afternoon was finished off with a West End favourite Ratty's virtual horse racing, it was like been at the races with everyone cheering on their own horse!! Lots of fun and laughter.

You told us

Mona - Lovely afternoon tea plenty of choice very good value and good entertainment. Thank you all. All for a really good cause that affects so many people.

Dian - Going home now with my cutting, I always learn something new from Dan. I have really enjoyed myself, great food, thank you all.
Eleanor - First visit to the centre you are all so welcoming, food was lovely and entertainment was great, thanks for supporting this charity means a lot to many.

We are really pleased to say thanks to everyone's generosity we raised £300.26 which will be sent to Breast Cancer Now.
