{Brides at Work} – fundraising initiative

I’ve been sent the following link that I wanted to share – yes, it’s unusual and crazy but I think it is a great way of raising funds for Breakthrough Breastcancer. The link is breakthrough.org.uk and I am going to replicate the text below:

The National Wedding Show is calling on all Brides to wear their wedding dress to work to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

It doesn’t matter if you were married in 2010, 1910 or even if it’s still a work in progress… if you can find a dress (and fit into it!) we need you to get sponsored to wear it to work on Friday 17th September 2010.

The whole of the wedding party can get involved too. Encourage your friends, family and colleagues to take part. Whether they are the bride, groom, bridesmaid, bestman, mother of the bride or usher they can wear their outfits to work too.

To register, contact:

Events Team
020 7025 2426
BridesatWork@breakthrough.org.uk”

If you, or anyone you know, is prepared to get back into your wedding dress on Friday 17 September 2010, let me know and I will come and photograph it. A close personal friend of mine is coming to the end of her chemotherapy as she was diagnosed with breast cancer. All of our lives will be touched by cancer and this crazy and unusual fundraising initiative is a way of giving something back.

And if you don’t want to wear your own dress, I’ve got two wedding dresses that you are more than welcome to borrow!
