Bra Fitting Launch


A free bra-fitting service has been set up by Cancer Focus Northern Ireland at the Ballymote Centre, Killough Road, Downpatrick, for women who live in the area. The service started on October 1 and will be open on Monday 10:00am - 2:00pm.

Betty McKee, a retired psychiatric nurse from Downpatrick and breast cancer survivor, is one of the dedicated volunteers who are now trained to fit specialist bra and swimwear for women who have gone through breast cancer surgery. “Having been through breast cancer myself, I know how important services like this are.”

After surgery and treatment, some women feel less confident in their body and self-image, and this service offers personal, one to one support, helping each patient choose the right item, in the right size, to suit them.

The service welcomes anyone who needs help with fittings not only in Downpatrick but from the surrounding areas. To make an appointment or for more information just call 07971 061 593 or email us on
