New Ultrasound Equipment at Bolton Breast Unit

Celebrating New Ultrasound Equipment at Bolton Breast Unit

We have some exciting news from the Bolton Breast Unit! We’re thrilled to share that the Sunflower Suite is now home to brand-new ultrasound equipment worth £110,000. This amazing kit was unveiled today, on Tuesday, 9th July, with the Mayor of Bolton, Andy Morgan, cutting the ribbon. We had a fantastic morning from 9.30 to 11.30 am celebrating this milestone.

Debbie Dowie, our amazing founder and chair, expressed our collective gratitude: “We are immensely grateful to everyone who has contributed to our fundraising efforts.” The staff at the Bolton Breast Unit couldn’t agree more, emphasising how this new equipment will significantly improve patient care.

This collaboration between Boot Out Breast Cancer and the Bolton NHS Breast Unit showcases the incredible things we can achieve when we come together. Our next big fundraising event is the Moulin Rouge Ball on 7th September 2024 at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester. We can’t wait to see you there!

Massive thanks to all our sponsors and volunteers who keep our mission alive. Let’s keep pushing forward, making a difference, and kicking breast cancer to the curb!

Of this large donation, £90,000 of the funds came from our last Diamond ball in Manchester last September. It was an unforgettable night, and we’re so proud of what we’ve achieved together.

The new equipment is dedicated to Bernie Mercer, a lifelong Bolton fan who was married to Dougie Mercer.  Bernie’s daughters, Eva and Fifi, were there for the big reveal, along with Bernie’s mum. We’re all keeping her memory alive through this incredible contribution.

We’ve included a lovely photo (below) of Bernie with her friends Margaret, Debbie (our chair), and Pauline – all of whom battled breast cancer together 15 years ago. It’s a powerful reminder of the strength and resilience within our community.

And here’s something we’re really proud of – our donations to the Bolton Breast Unit have now totalled an incredible £200,000! That’s a huge milestone for us. Since we started Boot Out Breast Cancer in 2010, we’ve raised over £1.6 million, all thanks to your unwavering support.

The new ultrasound room is a game-changer for the Bolton NHS Breast Unit. This cutting-edge technology will enhance breast cancer care by providing higher resolution images and better diagnostic capabilities, ensuring quicker and more accurate diagnoses.
