Gosforth born and educated at Westfield School then Northumbria University, Kate Walton of Havetolove has achieved many accolades but this one is particularly special as she is back to full health after a tough few years of treatment after Breast Cancer and this year she launched her own brand of Activewear, Havetolove Active.  Please see below about Havetolove Active.

 Alongside her love of women's fashion, owner of Havetolove fashion online and fashion boutique in Gosforth, Newcastle Kate Walton is pursuing her passion in launching her very own activewear range, with assistance of her Havetolove team, which will all be proudly branded as Havetolove Active.

Always healthy, fit and active, at the age of 34 Kate Walton's world collapsed.  Kate was diagnosed with breast cancer...

Whilst undergoing months of operations and treatment Kate threw herself into fitness and her passion for both health and fitness grew even more indulging herself in reformer pilates, barre and yoga to create a sense of mindfulness and to allow her mind to relax and restore during a stressful time in her life. 

After realising there was very little awareness for women with breast cancer under the age of 50 Kate produced a video on how to check your breasts and it was shared on social media platforms.  With her passion for health and fitness, her fashion business and her mission to make breast cancer more aware to women under 50 and create an activewear brand that stands out from the rest.

Kate wants to donate 10% of Sales to breast cancer awareness charities and with your help we can raise breast cancer awareness.

‘We want to create a stylish activewear brand that fits, whether it’s for the gym or for coffee with friends and if we can raise breast cancer awareness at the same time it’s a bonus.’  Kate Walton
