My association with Going for Bust

‘Going For Bust’ is a local breast cancer charity It was started in 2013 by people directly affected by breast cancer and has since opened thirteen charity shops across East Dorset and West Hampshire. In addition to the shops, there is a support and administration centre in Wimborne town square. Staff at the centre can arrange for wig-fitting and supply, post-surgery bras and swimwear and are always happy to give support with a chat in the comfortable lounge area.

In addition to the above, a weekly massage/ relaxation session is held on Mondays, which is where my involvement comes in!. Clients experiencing or recovering from breast cancer can book in for this free 30 minute appointment (donations welcome) with Michelle Ormston the Support Coordinator.

Michelle can be contacted Mon -Thurs 10-4pm by calling 01202 889258 or email The support centre also has it’s own Facebook page,
