As you will all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

To mark this month, and highlight the fabulous work of the team at The Breast Centre at University Hospital Llandough, we usually do some fundraising events specifically for the Breast Centre Appeal. As this year is a little different, we are being creative.

So, we would love it if you would support us for our ‘Virtual Halloween Balloon Race’. This is just like a regular balloon race in every other way except the actual balloon – please take a look at this video which explains it in further detail – it’s loads of fun and no harm to the environment.

To sign up, all you have to do is follow this link: which will take you straight to the registration page – then buy and create your balloon and you’re good to go for the start of the race on Saturday 31st October – it is going to be SPOOKTACULAR!

Just £3 per entry, there’s no limit on entries per household. There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs including £200 John Lewis Vouchers kindly donated by Poppi Contract Furniture, and a signed Cardiff City Football shirt kindly donated by Nathaniels Cars – there are other fabulous prizes too and all just in time for Christmas!

Please do support us, tell your friends and family and join in with some virtual fun. If you’d like any further information, contact us at
