The beauty who appeared in it, Elicia, who many of you will recognise for being the reigning Miss Manchester, is a friend of Genesis as we were the official charity of the 2010 beauty pageant!
The event raised over £500 for The Genesis Appeal and we would like to thank everyone that was involved again!
It was lovely seeing Elicia’s journey through the programme, and the end result sends out an excellent message to the public. It is important to remember that everyone is different and unique in their own way! We worked closely with artist Rosanna Ibarrola to portray this through the Art of Genesis, where beautiful portraits were painted of 15 different women, with 15 very different stories. The work is celebrating the women’s triumph over breast cancer and encouraging them to accept their newly formed bodies – and ultimatly shows us that everyone is beautiful in their own way, no matter what the circumstances.
