Picture special: House Hotel event in aid of Breast Cancer Research

A fundraising event was recently held at the House Hotel in aid of National Breast Cancer Research Institute.

The National Breast Cancer Research Institute is a is a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme from where it is based at NUI Galway.

The research team, in collaboration with universities and hospitals across the globe, focuses on the development and improvement of diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies, to drive real and measurable improvement in clinical outcomes for patients.

In Ireland, 1 in 9 women are affected by breast cancer and there are 3,000 cases diagnosed annually which is set to continue to increase.

As a charity the NBCRI relies heavily on donations and fundraising events like that which took place at the House Hotel on October 24 in order to support its research into new treatments and diagnoses.

Pictured below are some of the many people who came that night to help support a worthy cause.
