What our ladies say
"I have been attending the BIO luncheons for eleven years now and have always found this event inspiring, uplifting, emotional at times, but mainly enjoyable. Karen Hibbart has been at the forefront of the organisation of the BIO lunches from the on-set and branched out in 2012 to form her own satellite which was held at The Crown Plaza Hotel in Crawley and the whole event was amazing.
The whole room was set up beautifully, our tables were outstanding, service excellent, the singer was fantastic, the speeches in regards to the latest research was informative, we had a great raffle, an auction, and most of all a jolly good time. My ladies are all attending next year without a doubt!!
Well done Karen, looking forward to our next BIO".
"I was invited to my first lunch by my sister 5 years ago. Since then I have met and made many new friends and I get a chance to catch up with them every year, and now I’m meeting even more lovely people by being part of Karen’s satellite at the Crowne Plaza in Crawley.
I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, I can always guarantee that every lunch is a moving experience where not only do you gain a greater understanding of the trials everyday women go through, you also see how family’s and friends cope with this illness.
You are contributing to the support and research that people fighting cancer need just by having lunch with “the girls”, I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon".
"I attended my first BIO lunch in March 2012, the atmosphere was brilliant and I think everyone who came along felt they were part of a special event. Every little detail had been thought of, and I felt it was worth every penny. Listening to the charity representatives really brought home why it is so important for us to be raising the money. A highlight for me was certainly the amazing singer, she really did blow everyone away".
"I had my first BIO lunch this year and it really was an experience to remember, everything from the decoration to the surrounding company was amazing as well as the food! The guest speakers were inspirational to say the least and the entertainment was outstanding,
I have recommended it to my friends and family who are definitely interested in attending next year to show their support in the fight against cancer".
