Cape Hawke’s Tammy Randall is joining a number of Australians who have been touched by breast cancer in a Pink Lady El Camino trek in Spain in 2018.

Up to 20 others from all over Australia will take on the journey, which is planned for May-June.

The trek has been put together by the Breast Cancer Network Association (BCNA) together with Inspired Adventures to raise donations for breast cancer research.

Tammy has been inspired to undertake the challenge as a result of her own experience with the illness.

“I, like many women and men have had a breast cancer diagnosis,” Tammy said.

“Unfortunately I have had it twice, but thankfully I am all clear now.

“I thought it was time to do something to give back to this fabulous organisation.

“I fully fund my journey, with all donations raised going to BCNA, which supplies information kits and support for those diagnosed and for their families.  

“Like so many organisations the BCNA relies on donations to continue the support they offer.”

In addition to the trip, Tammy held a high tea party on November 25, to raise further funds for the BCNA.

“I decided a high tea garden party would be a fabulous way to not only raise donations, but to gather people together in a beautiful environment before the Christmas rush,” she said.

“We had 100 ladies frock up and gather in our garden, enjoying laughing and talking over tea, coffee, champagne and tasty treats.

“A beautiful afternoon was had by all with more than $4600 raised for BCNA.

“I wanted to thank all those who attended, the businesses who donated and to family and friends who helped me in hosting the event.”
