Babs O'Brien Vince O'Brien Lucy's Ladies Dinner Breast Cancer Now Lucy Smith-Guy

On Saturday 13th October Babs & Vince O’Brien are opening their home to host Lucy’s Ladies Dinner to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. 

The dinner is in memory of a young woman called Lucy Smith-Guy who lost her brave battle with triple negative breast cancer in 2015. Babs and Vince are hoping to raise over £3000 for Breast Cancer Now via Legacy4Lucy

50 ladies have been invited to enjoy a meal which includes Asian and Euro choices. A full evening of entertainment is planned beginning with a gin history talk followed by tasting and sampling, a three course meal including wine, live music, a fun charity auction and a raffle!

A few local businesses will also be running stalls selling products where a % of the sales will go to Breast Cancer Now.

Everyone involved cooks, waiters, bar staff and musicians are all giving their time and skills for free.

Guests attending the evening have been asked to make a donation of £40 to Breast Cancer Now via a Just Giving page. All the food, wine and gin has been generously donated and so every single penny raised by the event goes directly to the charity.  Guests are asked to bring something with them for the charity auction this can be a surplus or unused item or a skill ie: 3 hour cake decorating session, flower arranging etc etc..

Local businesses have been approached to ask for their help by giving donations for the raffle or auction so………… if there are any businesses who can help raise money for this fantastic cause please contact Babs. 

All 50 guests will be going home with a Breast Cancer Now goodie bag containing promotional items and of course their auction wins But………. any business willing to make a donation either via the Just Giving Page or by donating something for the raffle or auction will have their business card, menu , product information etc put in the bag to promote their business.

Although the target of 50 guests has been reached Babs does say they can always squeeze a few more in so if you are a business who is willing to donate or a group of ladies who would like to join in with this worthwhile event please check out the Just Giving Page
