Today is the 1st of October, which to so many of us signals the start of Pink Octocer or breast cancer awareness month. I do love charity, the colour pink, Cadburys Flake and old movies. So when this hit my inbox I knew so many of you would be as excited as myself! Now unfortunately I can't put up the whole pretty flyer that they sent me because I am just not that computer savvy, but I'll try my best to recreate it for you! This is a great girly event and hopefully it will raise a lot for Action Breast Cancer. So tell as many people as you can, tell your mothers, your girlfriends, your sisters, cousins, aunties and even granny's and get them all together for this very special festival, and help the Irish Cancer Society raise much needed funds for this brilliant charity. Here is a link to Action Breast Cancer's webpage if you want to find out more about this great charity.The Cadbury Film Festival will take place in Cineworld, Parnell Street, Dublin 1.
