We are teaming up with Redruth breast cancer survivor, Brenda Pedley, to turn the hotel pink for Cancer Research UK to raise money for the charity’s breast cancer awareness and fundraising campaign, ‘Join the fight for women’s survival’ .
In 2001 Brenda was diagnosed with breast cancer and is now enjoying a life free from the disease. Her cancer was caught very early on during her first routine mammogram, testament that early diagnosis is essential. Brenda said: “This is great way to celebrate 10 years since my diagnosis’. Since then she has raised nearly £80,000 for Cancer Research UK. She went on to say ‘Hopefully with the Penventon Hotel hosting this pink themed evening we can increase awareness and encourage others help raise even more money. We want people to book dinner at the Penventon Hotel and be counted as they ‘Join the fight for women’s survival’.
The Penventon’s brigade of Chefs will be preparing an especially themed ‘Pink’ menu – with a donation of £5 made by the hotel directly to Cancer Research UK for every person dining from the menu. The hotel’s friends from the Polgoon Vineyard in Penzance will be providing Pink Bubbly – for an invited donation – again, the donation going directly to Cancer Research UK.
To add some more atmosphere to the room, Steve from Cornish Decorative Balloons, is kindly donating displays on the tables.
Polgoon Wines are our partners on the evening and ALL the sales from their wine sales that evening will be donated as well.
With places limited, and demand already high, please contact the hotel on 01209 203000 to book your table as soon as possible, stating you wish to dine from the charity menu.
Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, Cancer Research UK was able to spend over £41 million on groundbreaking work into the disease last year, making it the largest single funder of breast cancer research in the UK.
This research is crucial, but also very expensive, so the charity’s fundraisers are getting fighting fit to enlist support from local people.
Please show your support for the vital work being carried out, whilst enjoying a night out with Penventon’s unique atmosphere, quality food and service.
