Tracy at Blue Fizz Events joined forces with 66 other women to champion the cause of Women v Cancer this September. Cancer is sadly prevalent in all our lives and not one of us is untouched by it – whether through direct personal trauma or knowing either a family member or friend who has been struck by this horrible illness.
The group’s challenge was to cycle 350km of the Bahia area of Brazil – climbing over 20,000ft during the 5 days and in doing , so they completed their task. Collectively the group has successfully raised over £220,000 for Women v Cancer.
Tracy wanted to take this opportunity of thanking some of the brilliant and supportive businesses who helped sponsor her events, thus allowing her to raise funds to these incredible charities. Her events, including The Barefoot Ball, The Indian Summer Festival & Feast and the Secret Masquerade Ball , were all supported by some of THE most fabulous businesses throughout the South West – huge heartfelt thanks to –
