I popped into our local village this morning and was bowled over by the pink decorations many of the local shops and businesses had put in their windows.
It turns out that this is all in aid of The Lady McAdden Breast Screening Unit - affectionately known locally as BUST - a free service for all women of any age and unconnected with the National NHS screening service. The screening does not include a mammogram, rather a place where you can check out any lumps or bumps, pain or any other breast symptoms. A place you can get advice from specially trained breast nurses. They do such a fantastic job and all they ask is for a donation whenever you visit.
Hence all the pink - and hats of to all those who organised this fundraising week in Thundersley where customers can make donations in their local shops.
While I was there I came across one those pop up libraries. I think I wrote about this a few years ago. Anyway it's back in the village and such a lovely idea.
Hope you all have a great week.
