Furleigh Estate’s Pink Perfection for Breast Cancer Month
23rd September 2016
Furleigh Estate will be raising money for charity Weldmar Hospicecare Trust throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which runs from 1st – 30th October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a worldwide annual campaign involving thousands of organisations to highlight the importance of breast awareness and to raise funds.
For every bottle of Furleigh Sparkling Rosé sold from the cellar door, Furleigh Estate will donate £1 from the sale to Weldmar.
Helping to create awareness about breast cancer and raising money towards providing palliative care and support for families coping with the illness, is something that Furleigh Estate owner Rebecca Hansford feels very strongly about; she recently lost a close member of her family to the disease.
“Cancer is a disease that affects so many families; sadly most of us know someone who has suffered from it. It’s important to let others know that you understand what they’re going through, and to raise funds to enable continued support and care for those living with a cancer diagnosis and their families – Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a good opportunity to do this.”
Furleigh Estate has teamed up with The Venner Bar‘s (The Bull Hotel Bridport) mixologist Lloyd Brown to create the Pink Perfection cocktail that can be made for a pink party or fundraising event during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“We thought it would be fun to give people an easy cocktail recipe that they can make at home for friends and family, and at the same time raise money for charity,” says Rebecca.
