Welcome to our 6th Fashion Show. Twenty breast cancer patients will model clothes available in the Grand Arcade at a Fashion Show in aid of Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal.
Mum of two, Natalie Emuss is a dedicated supporter of the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal. Natalie and her husband Paul have been raising funds for the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal since 2014 and they continue to fundraise to help make a difference for future patients. Natalie has organised annual Fashion Show fundraising events since 2014 raising £38,000.00 so far. Since 2016 she has collaborated with Jennifer Mason to successfully hold larger fashion shows at the Grand Arcade in Cambridge.
Jenny teamed up with Natalie Emuss, utilising all her retail know-how, to create and produce the show. Models who are either undergoing treatment or have survived breast cancer, walk down the catwalk in pieces lent from several passionate retail neighbours that Jenny has brought onboard. The show is incredibly inspiring and is an annual highlight within the centre.

What We Achieved
Over the years, funds raised from the Addenbrooke’s Breast Cancer Appeal has helped renovate quiet rooms, buy specialist ultrasound scanners, support cutting-edge research programme to help make treatment more targeted and effective. In 2016, we raised £10,465.00 with the help of all our generous sponsors and supporters. This went towards the purchase of the Addenbrooke’s Breast Unit Specimen X ray equipment. With this equipment, biopsies can be performed in less time and to higher safety standards. This means less distress for patients while they undergo a biopsy procedure and, at the same time, allow more patients to be diagnosed more quickly. In 2017, we raised £8,157.80 and in 2018 we raised an incredible £11,125.57.
