Fantastic work for this cancer-related charity

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you on behalf of Knitted Knockers Costa del Sol to ask if you would consider to raise awareness of the fantastic work this charity does for ladies who have suffered from breast cancer. 

Knitted Knockers (American terminology!) are a group of volunteers who hand make soft, comfortable knitted prostheses, for women who have undergone a mastectomy or lumpectomy. They are provided free of charge to those who need them in a variety of colours and sizes.

The Costa del Sol branch of Knitted Knockers is run by Maria Bailey and Margaret Stevenson who have recently celebrated delivering their 1000th knitted knocker to recipients in Spain, UK, USA, Morocco, The Philippines, Australia, Georgia and Italy.

As well as helping to knit the prostheses, I have volunteered to try to raise awareness of the project in Gibraltar where I am currently working. Yesterday Maria gave a great interview on the breakfast radio show with Kelly-Ann Borge. We have been in contact with St Bernards hospital who have been given some flyers and samples of the knitted prosthesis.

Also as a result of contacting the hospital, Maria is going to be giving a presentation at the Cancer Relief Centre (5 South Barracks Road) on Thursday 25 April 2019.

We are not necessarily looking to raise more funds for the project (although donations are always welcome!) but more to raise awareness of the project for those who would like to be given the prostheses free of charge and also for any knitters who would like to volunteer to make the knockers.

Kindest regards

Nicola Ward
