Let me explain!!!
As most of you know, WCSUK is based online and therefore many of us ladies have never met before. So I decided to organise a meet up.
So last weekend, around 20 of us gathered in Birmingham for the inaugural WCSUK get together!
We had a meeting in the morning, at which the lovely Jennifer Young from Defiant Beauty http://www.beautydespitecancer.co.uk/ gave us a brief chat about her company and her wonderful products that are designed for cancer patients.
Then after a break for lunch, we had a walk through the city centre up to Victoria Square. If you know Birmingham at all, you will know that is where the local attraction known as the floosie in the Jacuzzi is!
This is where we held our photo shoot! The sun was out and so soon were the peach knickers!! The ladies had fun showing off their peach undies in the sunshine and some of them even persuaded some of the local constabulary to have their photo's taken with us.
We had loads of fun and did manage to raise awareness - after all, people are going to stop and ask why we were waving peach knickers around, aren't they??
Also in the area were a group of young people who were dressed in animal costumes so some of our ladies went across and had their photographs taken with them. Turned out one of them had a Mother who had had womb cancer - small world!
The weekend was a great success and we hope to repeat it next year and also have smaller regional get-togethers throughout the year.
It was wonderful to finally meet so many of the women that until now I had only known through FB and the weekend will be remembered for a long time.
Here's to all the Peach Ladies of WCSUK!
