Spicegirl Geri Halliwell joins forces with John Leech to fight Breast Cancer

The following is taken from a recent article in the Manchester Evening News about my campaign against breast cancer:

Spicegirl Geri Halliwell has joined forces with a Manchester MP in the fight against breast cancer.

John Leech, MP for Manchester Withington, met ‘Ginger Spice’ for a special strawberry tea party in the House of Commons to raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Care charity.

Some 50,000 people are diagnosed with the disease every year.

Mr Leech said: “I know that there will be countless families across my constituency who have been affected by breast cancer, either personally or through the experience of a friend, family member or work colleague.

“By hosting your own strawberry tea event this summer you can help Breast Cancer Care to continue to be there for anyone affected by this disease.

“I have worked closely with many cancer charities over the years and in Manchester Withington we have one of the best, The Christie Hospital, and it is campaigns like this that can help support The Christie and the thousands of patients fight this terrible disease.”

Geri added: “Get all your guests to kindly make a donation, which helps Breast Cancer Care to support over 1.7m people every year.

“Breast Cancer Care provides world class support, help and information to anyone affected by breast cancer.”
