Beardwood Hospital Scanner The Samaritans Asda's Tickled Pink Campaign
Singer Linda Nolan was the special guest as Beardwood Hospital in Blackburn unveiled some new scanning equipment.

Linda, best known for being part of the sibling girl group the Nolans, said “I’m delighted to launch the new MRI and CT scanning centre at BMI Beardwood Hospital. The private hospital’s new MRI scanner will be ‘hugely beneficial’ for patients.

The scanner, which weighs the same as a double-decker bus, had to be crane lifted into the private hospital, which is based in Preston New Road.

The centre will be hugely beneficial to the people of Lancashire and Cumbria, in helping detect and diagnose diseases. 

Sam Sheehan, Executive Director of BMI The Beardwood Hospital, commented “These new MRI and CT scanners will play a major role in diagnosis at BMI Beardwood Hospital.  

It is fantastic to work with Alliance to create this great service for Lancashire and Cumbria’s residents.

Such a worthy cause, not all people realise how much help they give in times of need. 

The speaker after the AGM was one of the Nolan Sisters. Linda Nolan told her heart rending story of the loss of her husband and the devastation she felt. 

A call to the Samaritans changed her life and she once again started to live her life accepting the loss of her loved one. Samaritans provide an ear to listen, an interaction and time. 

They are always there, round the clock, every single day of the year.  Good to know there is support if you need it.

Hug in A Bag Blackpool
Hug in a Bag Blackpool was launched in 2012 after the positive effect of receiving a bag was experienced first hand. Since its launch Hug in a Bag Blackpool continues to go from strength to strength. 

Our aim is to give one more hug in the form of a bag containing gifts and information leaflets to people diagnosed with Breast Cancer in the Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde area. After all, everyone likes a hug!

Samantha Cameron hosted a Number 10 Downing Street reception for Breast Cancer Campaign on Tuesday 15 January 2013, to launch the charity’s new project that will transform the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for women with breast cancer. 

The event brought together breast cancer experts, women living with breast cancer and high profile supporters touched by the disease including presenter Kirstie Allsopp, singers Beverley Knight and Linda Nolan, Breast Cancer Campaign Patron Dame Jenni Murray and comediennes Olivia Lee and Morwenna Banks.

Asda's Tickled Pink campaign has been awarded an ‘Outstanding Corporate Partner Achievement’ prize by Breast Cancer Campaign in recognition of their tong-term support of breast cancer charities. They launched the Tickled Pink campaign in 1996 and since then have raised a staggering £29 million. In the last five years alone this money has helped fund 80 research projects in 20 locations across the UK and Ireland.

They have also solely funded six Scientific Fellowships – worth more than £6 million – which have helped retain the best scientists  in medical research in the UK. 

Money is raised in all kinds of ways with pink products sold in Asda stores throughout the year and colleagues taking part in fundraising challenges to help boost donations.

Trinity Hospice, Blackpool

These amazing people looked after Bernie Nolan and The Nolan family in Bernie's final days. Coleen Nolan said: “You know about hospices but you think it’s depressing, it’s where people go in their final moments.

 So it was a bit scary when they said Bernie was going into a hospice. “But I can tell you ... it was the most amazing place.”

Breast Cancer Pink Ribbon Ball 

We were delighted to have singer and actress Linda Nolan as the Patron of Pink Ribbon Balls at the Dorchester Hotel. 

Linda said: “Having had breast cancer, I was thrilled to support the Pink Ribbon Ball this year and be Patron for the event. 

It was such a wonderful evening and I was thrilled to see so many supporters of the charity having a great time while raising money to support vital breast cancer research.” 

Fighting cancer and grieving for her husband, Linda Nolan could see little reason to carry on. It was the “bleakest period of her life” and she sank into the deepest depression imaginable. 

She was forced to quit her role in the musical Blood Brothers and underwent intensive counselling. But Linda was adamant that only one thing saved her – the love of her sisters Coleen, Bernie, Maureen, Denise and Anne.

Linda has since become Patron of many charity’s including Sharon Fox Cancer Charity in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Founder Sharon Cox said - "What an amazing experience at the 3rd foxy variety show. 

Not a dry eye in the building - We still can’t quite comprehend that Linda Nolan loved our cause so much she wants to be patron.  Sue wasn’t well enough to attend which we were gutted about and the lovely Linda came with us to take her birthday cake a signed CD and  flowers. We had our very own little celebration in the hospice, yesterday’s memories will last in my mind forever.
