Breast Cancer Now is the largest breast cancer charity in the UK, dedicated to funding pioneering research into this devastating disease.
Alesha Dixon, said: “It was absolute honour to perform at the Pink Ribbon Ball Manchester and I thoroughly enjoyed performing under the wings of Concorde G-BOAC aircraft! One in eight women in the UK will face breast cancer in their lifetime so I am delighted to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Now’s life-saving research, it is such a worthy and important cause. I hope everyone had a fabulous evening.”
Now in its 3rd year, the Pink Ribbon Ball Manchester is regarded as one of the most prestigious and highly acclaimed events in Manchester’s social calendar. The unique event combines celebrities, first class entertainment and a worthy cause, helping to raise funds for breast cancer, which remaims the most common cancer in the UK.

“That’s why fundraising events such as this are so important. As well as everybody having a fantastic evening, the ball is about raising money to fund Breast Cancer Now’s research into this devastating disease and we are so grateful for all of the support in Manchester.
