Fundraise For Flat Friends UK

Our fundraising aims are based solely on supporting or furthering our charitable purpose, which is:

The relief of women in the UK who have had or may face mastectomy, and who live or are considering living without breast reconstruction, in particular (but not limited to) by providing information, advice, and raising awareness among healthcare professionals and the wider public
All donations, and profits from our fundraising activities go directly to projects that support our charitable purpose. Our charity is managed and run solely by volunteers thanks to our amazing team of trustees, and online support group moderators – all of whom are women living without reconstruction after mastectomy. We work hard to keep our overheads to a minimum.
