Local charity group Knitted Knockers is holding a fun run in Lurgan Park on April 8 at 2pm.

The group started in July last year, and their volunteer knitters have helped deliver 320 personal orders to breast cancer survivors as well as delivering Kto Breast Clinics, some GPs, Bra fitting Shops and Cancer Charities.

Knitted Knockers are free soft, comfortable 100% cotton Breast Prostheses. The hope is that ladies will find the handcrafted breast prostheses to be a comfortable, soft alternative to traditional prostheses which can be worn in all bras not just mastectomy bras.

They will also be launching “The Sticky Wicket”, a Creative/social/sporty upbeat space separately for Men & Women on the breast cancer journey.
