Celebrating Cinema and Breast Health at the British Film Festival Presented by Palace

27 October 2022

What a remarkable night it was! The opening of the British Film Festival Presented by Palace, where Australian Breast Care Centre (ABCC) proudly stood as the official charity partner. The event was a resounding success, with over 1000 attendees gathering at the Palace Cinemas Como to mark the occasion.

The feature film of the night, “Mrs Harris goes to Paris,” showcased a story that resonates beyond class distinctions, emphasizing that determination and action can transcend societal barriers when striving to achieve a goal.

Interestingly, this aligns with the message ABCC conveys to women who are focused on taking care of their breast health. Just as the film festival’s compilation offers a must-see cinematic experience, ABCC’s fundraising efforts continue in conjunction with the festival, culminating with more winners to be announced on 17 November, 2022.

A heartfelt thank you extends to all who attended the event, standing in support of our cause. A special acknowledgment goes to breast care nurse, Debbie Scott, and her daughter, who remarkably sold a record number of raffle tickets on the night. Their efforts help amplify awareness about breast cancer incidents among women under 50 and underscore the significance of genetic testing.
