Jill’s shocking pink raises cancer awareness

Jill Capson, wife of Whaley Bridge Village Barber Tony, is busy organising a campaign to help breast cancer awareness and research.  Jill is  a local ‘ambassador’ for the charity Genesis.  She herself is recovering from breast cancer, a disease which took the life of her only sister Sinead last year at the age of 48.

Jill, in a shocking pink wig, recently visited the Disley nursery Blue Grass, Purple Cow  to join with staff and children  for a ‘pink day’. Parents of children contributed financially, and the youngsters dolled up in everything pink, to march round their playground.  American owner Kimberley Munro said:  “It was a good way to wear pink all day!”

Jill plans local awareness events, including a coffee morning  at the Mechanics’ Institute in June.

Genesis is based at the Nightingale centre in Wythenshawe Hospital. Contact Jill on 07930 430 305.
