T-Shirts Present Curves Staff At Their Best

“A women-only health club has raised thousands of pounds for a breast cancer charity – by designing T-shirts. Curves members in Cowplain and North End were invited to come up with thought-provoking slogans to help raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Care charity. The slogans included 'Don't be a boob, check yourself', 'We'll beat breast cancer', 'Check your curves are in shape' and 'Better feel a breast, than lose one'. The winning entries were by Sue Blackman, from Cowplain, whose slogan, 'Wot the heck, take a check' fitted in well with her design and Helen Leppard and Marion Barnard, both from Portsmouth. Throughout October, which was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Curves organised games, quizzes, a raffle, competitions, a coffee morning, an auction and Liv Aid sales. Jackie Mounty, operations manager at Waterlooville branch, said: 'The T-shirt competition was just one of the things that our two clubs did.' A whopping £3,584 has been raised so far.”
