Furleigh Estate: Think pink and raise money during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dorset’s Furleigh Estate will be raising money for Dorset charity Weldmar Hospicecare Trust throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which runs from 1–30 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 Rose sold from 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,” says Rebecca.

Grant Usmar, Director of Fundraising at Weldmar, said: “As a local charity we rely on the generosity of local people and businesses. It is only with their support that we are able to continue delivering care and support to people when they need it most across Dorset. It is wonderful that Furleigh Wine Estate has chosen to continue to support our work through their company’s activities.”

Furleigh Estate has teamed up with The Venner Bar‘s 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.
