Here is a great opportunity to support a local initative to raise funds and awareness about predominantly female cancers.
Julie Bennett and Claire Webster are going to be doing a cycle challenge this October in Cuba for Women Versus Cancer. This is a series of women-only cycle challenges in aid of three British charities – Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action – raising vital funds to fight the disease.
To aid their fundraising efforts, they recruited Saskia Aafjes from The Studio in Valbonne to produce postcards with a special message. They found four ladies and nine men who were brave enough to help them and pose for the cards. The end result is ten black and white postcards, each with their own individual message.
You can buy the postcards at Brittain’s in Valbonne, the shoe shop ‘les Foies de Valerie’ in Valbonne village, from Julie Bennett’s Just Giving webpage, or by sending an email to Saskia at the Studio.
There will also be an exhibition of the photographs on the 13th of June at Lakavanou in Valbonne Village, starting at 19h00, where the postcards will also be on sale. The cards cost €10 for 10.
