The assistant manager of financial control at HSBC Private Bank chose the charity after losing her mother to breast cancer at 40 when she was only 10 years old. ‘I feel it is now time for me to help others and I hope to raise as much as I can to help the Pink Ladies.’

Although born in Thailand, she has lived in the island for 22 years.
She decided to participate after regularly running five miles, which she gradually increased every week.
‘I can now comfortably run 20 miles which in itself is a great achievement.’
The 43-year-old included another 20-mile run over Easter as part of her training, with the help of her coach, Peter de Bertrand, whom she said had been extremely helpful.
She is hoping to raise £1,000 for the charity.
Jo Allen from the Pink Ladies was delighted that Mrs Winstanley had chosen to support the charity.
‘The money raised will help us to continue helping breast cancer patients in the Bailiwick,’ Mrs Allen said.
‘As well as paying for holistic therapy for patients currently undergoing treatment and giving ladies in hospital a pink bag containing useful items, we continue to pay for and support training and education for breast care staff and members of our group.’
Mrs Allen said that they also help patients with cleaning, ironing and transport to appointments, which can be arranged by contacting the helpline on 07781 415131.
