Welcome to the fourth regular edition and the first of the new decade of the Breast Friends Northamptonshire newsletter. If you know of someone that would be interested in receiving this newsletter then please pass on this sign-up link: http://bit.ly/BFN-Newsletter
2019 was a mixed year for the group, we've expanded so much that we've had to move on from our regular home of Dappers to accommodate all our members in our regular monthly meetings (our private Facebook Group now has over 200 members). However, our relationship is by no means over as we will still continue to use Dappers for our regular coffee mornings.
As we've grown we have also needed to rely more on the committee members who we are eternally grateful for their hard work and help and we are looking forward to the training day we will be shortly spending with as many of them as possible.
We once again ran our members' advent calendar with items that have been donated by the wonderful businesses and individuals from around the county who we could not run this without, check our Facebook Page for the full list of donations.
We were very close to hitting our target selling 50 tickets per month in the Northampton Lottery. If that target is reached we will receive £1300 per year, and hopefully one of you will win £25,000.

If you use an inkjet printer (or know someone who does) we are able to receive a £1 for each one we return to Recycle4Charity. Please bring them with you to the next meeting and we can arrange to send them off.
If you can't get to a meeting, just head to their website and they will send postage-paid envelopes to you.
Local British Tapas restaurant Bread and Pullet are hosting a "Pink & Perky" Charity Afternoon Tea on February 9th to raise funds for BFN with £5 per afternoon tea sold coming straight to us. For more information head to their event page on Facebook.
