    For Dawn-Maria France, this partnership goes far and beyond the simple sponsoring of an event.

    "I've admired the work of The Haven for many years and know people who have regarded the organisation's good work as a lifeline. Therefore, I can't think of a better charity to be supporting at such a family-orientated time of year."

    Continuing, "At Yorkshire Women's Life Magazine we have a mandate to keep our fingers on the pulse of issues affecting women on a regional, national and international level. The Haven continues to support people with breast cancer, by working with experts to create individual and personalised programmes of care to each person who walks through their doors, the programmes are tailored to help people cope with the challenges of breast cancer, and as a women's title we are happy to support such vital work."
