On Wednesday 1st October Chesterford Reseach Park played host to a very special fashion show in aid of Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal.
The show, which raised over £3,000 and featured clothes and accessories from John Lewis’s Autumn/Winter collection, was the brainchild of Natalie Emuss who recently underwent treatment for breast cancer at Addenbrookes. With the help of her great friend and fellow cancer patient, Nicola Reeves, the two women organised and modelled in the fashion show with the aim of ultimately raising £100,000 for the Addenbrooke's breast cancer appeal in order to buy a new ultrasound scanner for the breast unit. They were overwhelmed by the success of the event and thrilled to have had such a great venue for the show.
The fashion show took place in The Nucleus at Chesterford Research Park. It was very well attended by over 240 people and showcased The Nucleus as a truly versatile venue. Chesterford is very proud to have been part of this fundraising activity and looks forward to hosting many more events like this in the future.
