Hitchin’s Women in Business Networking group donned their posh frocks to raise funds for animal-free research into breast cancer.
Get Your Frock On! is a partnership between Hitchin-based charity Animal Free Research UK and Breast Cancer UK, who are combining their expertise as part of a groundbreaking three-year research project.
In the spirit of ‘getting smart about breast cancer’, the networking group met at The Sun Hotel dressed in smart evening wear – and raised £170 towards the campaign.
Louise Yexley, who runs the group, said: “It’s seemed a bit strange conducting business in ball gowns. We did get a few strange looks by diners in The Sun Hotel – but it is for a good cause, and we were pleased to be able to help towards this important research that affects one in eight women.”
