As you are aware October being International Breast Cancer Awareness month has for the past 7 years been marked by Maria and the Pink Ladies and Panthers in collaboration with the management of Zenia Boulevard and this year was no exception.

The original date was to be Friday 22nd October but unfortunately the heavy rain on that date prevented this from happening so the event was moved to Wednesday 27 October.

The Boulevard management donated €500 raised from members of the public walking a total of 50 kilometers on a treadmill provided by Decathlon, the Boulevard management also donated hundreds of potted plants to be given to shoppers at the Centre by the Pink Ladies and Panthers.

The Pink Ladies received an unexpected visit to their stand by the Mayor of Orihuela Emilio Bascuñana. AACC Orihuela Costa President Maria Wilson said he was very pleasant and acknowledged every one of my Pink Ladies and Panthers and congratulated us on all the good work we do as volunteers, he even had a go on the treadmill before posing for photographs with me and the volunteers.
