Judy Murray and Fern Britton support Breast Cancer Now's All About Boobs lunch in Edinburgh

On Sunday 15 November, it was All About Boobs in Edinburgh as more than 150 women and a host of celebrities joined us at the All About Boobs fundraiser lunch at the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian.

All About Boobs, which was co-sponsored by the hotel and Cheynes Hairdressing, raised nearly £18,000 for our life-saving research.

Tennis coach and former Strictly Come Dancing competitor, Judy Murray, joined TV personality Fern Britton at the exclusive lunch in the city centre.

To add to the famous faces, former rugby player Scott Hastings was also on hand as our star auctioneer and broadcaster and sports journalist Alison Walker was lead host. Even Mr and Mrs Claus came along to add some Christmas sparkle to the afternoon.

The glitzy fundraiser included a live auction where our supporters got the chance to bid on many exclusive prizes and trips, such as a studio tour of This Morning with TV chef Phil Vickery, afternoon tea with Judy Murray and the chance to be named after a character in Val McDermid’s next book.

As an added bonus, Judy Murray also generously donated front-row tickets to the open day at Wimbledon to the auction, which raised nearly £14,000 alone. It was a fantastic day and a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness for our charity.

We really appreciate the hard work of all of our dedicated supporters and we are overwhelmed by the support and money raised from All About Boobs.

The money raised will help the Breast Cancer Now Edinburgh Research Project, which is located at the Western General.
