Northallerton store supports cancer charity with specialist session
2:01pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
A DEPARTMENT store is marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month with specialist bra fitting sessions for women recovering from surgery.
In recent years Barkers, in Northallerton, has provided a fitting service for women who have undergone mastectomy surgery.
And on October 24 the service will be brought to the fore, when trained staff in the lingerie department are joined for the day by an expert from specialist care lingerie firm Anita.
Fashion and footwear buyer Jane Hunter said: “Why should a lady who has been through trauma of a mastectomy not be able to just go out and choose a bra like everybody else? We aim to make the experience as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.”
Afternoon teas will also be served in the store’s restaurant between 2pm and 4pm to raise funds for Breast Cancer Support Northallerton.
For more details about the breast cancer awareness event, contact 01609 772303. Breast Cancer Support Northallerton can be reached on 01609 773964.
