K-Club’s 10th Anniversary: Fundraising for Prevent Breast Cancer with Sir Graham Brady




Our inaugural charity event proved a huge success, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of K-Club. It brought together a wonderful gathering of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and honourable guests from all walks of business, charity, politics, and law, all with the common goal of raising funds for Prevent Breast Cancer, a charity based in Manchester that supports patients and research nationally.


The glittering event was hosted by the Directors of K-Club and held at The Clink Restaurant, also a highly successful charity located at HMP Styal. Frequently in the top 10 restaurants in Wilmslow on TripAdvisor, The Clink opened in 2015 and serves high-quality meals cooked and served by prisoners training for City & Guilds NVQs in Food & Beverage Service, Professional Cookery, and Food Hygiene. Situated in a converted chapel, the restaurant helps prisoners learn, engage with the public, and take their first steps towards a new life, contributing to one of the lowest reoffending rates in the UK.


We were delighted to welcome two distinguished speakers to entertain guests following the dinner. Sir Graham Brady, the Member of Parliament for Altrincham & Sale West and Chair of the 1922 Committee, shared his insights and experiences, particularly those relevant to the local business community. With a distinguished career in politics, having served in various roles including Shadow Minister for Schools and Shadow Europe Minister, his contributions were highly valued.


Our second speaker was David Mason KC, a criminal barrister for 37 years and King’s Counsel since 2010, who spoke about his personal experience with breast cancer following the loss of his wife in November 2022. He shared his efforts in raising over £10,000 for the Prevent Breast Cancer charity and discussed the charity's work in preventing the disease for future generations.


The beneficiary of the fundraiser was Manchester charity Prevent Breast Cancer, and their CEO, Nikki Barraclough, addressed the audience and outlined their vision and goals. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. Every year, over 55,900 people are diagnosed with breast cancer—that’s over 153 people a day. The charity aims to stop the problem before it starts in three clear steps: Predict, Prevent, Protect. Unlike many cancer charities, rather than finding a cure, they’re entirely dedicated to preventing future generations from ever being diagnosed. Their most recent appeal, Build To Beat Breast Cancer, is a £3.8 million initiative to build a new National Breast Imaging Academy.


All proceeds from this wonderful event went to Prevent Breast Cancer, and we’re delighted to say the day raised more than £2,000 towards the National Breast Imaging Academy.
