On Saturday, the 19th of March 2016, London Ethnic, alongside with Simply Be and Apricot Clothing, will take part on the seventh annual “Tea with Ovacome” charity event to raise awareness about ovarian cancer and its symptoms.
Tea with Ovacome is an annual event raising awareness about the Ovarian Cancer & raising funds for the OVACOME network via a “Champagne Afternoon Tea & Fashion Show” at The May Fair Hotel, London.
Ovacome models, all survivors from ovarian cancer, will display garments from our London Ethnic AW16 and SS16 collections.
As part of our AW16 collection and especially for the event, we have designed “The Ovacome Teal Dress”.
Teal is the official colour for supporting the fight against ovarian cancer.
All of London Ethnic’s profits from the sale of the Teal Dress are being donated to the Charity Ovacome.
Ovacome is the Ovarian Cancer Support Network and works to raise awareness about ovarian cancer and its symptoms, as well as providing support for people who have been affected by ovarian cancer. For more information, please go to www.ovacome.org.uk
Ovarian cancer is the second most common gynaecological cancer in the UK. Every year, 7000 women in the UK will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and almost 5000 will die of it. This makes ovarian cancer a deadly disease and one of the key reasons for this is because most cases are diagnosed in the late stages.
If you would like to make a donation direct to OVACOME, please use Just Giving page. www.justgiving.com/teawithovacome2015 Funds raised via this just giving page will be grant matched therefore doubling your donation to Ovacome. So please give generously.
