Ladies Pink Night at Friends Bistro

fucshia faces bottom (4)On September the 29th, 35 ‘Pink Ladies’ took over Friends Bistro in Great Yarmouth. Jenny, the owner organised a wonderful evening, with a pink theme, food, decorations & drink.

After an appetising  two course meal, the tables were cleared & the dancing & noise commenced! Jenny played 70’s & 80’s music & the dancing started. I could not believe how much noise 35 women ( & Brian) could make!! The doors were open & passing pedestrians kept popping in to see what was happening.

Overall that evening we raised £360 plus £103 already raised from selling badges on the counter in Friends. A fantastic amount of £463.

A really Big Thank You to Jenny & her staff who made the evening such a success & to all the new friends we made on the night ….. lets do it again soon??


Went shopping today & was impressed with Debenhams, they are donating £1 from every bra sold. The money going  to Breakthrough Breast Cancer,  Breast Cancer Campaign  and Pink Ribbon Foundation. This is part of their ‘Think Pink’ initiative.

Would have been a lot happier if the staff had been more helpful though…I asked about post surgery bras, they said they did not sell them but if I wanted to buy something related they were selling ‘pink wellingtons’ .

I think in this informed age, when everyone is now so aware of breast cancer, shops like Debenhams should have a range of bras available for women who have had surgery. Why should I have to buy my lingerie online…as advised?

BUT John Lewis’s in Norwich have a small selection in store & the staff are really helpful.
