On Friday 20 October Ryecroft Glenton staff held their 4th annual Wear Pink to Work day, swapping their usual office attire for anything pink and raised an incredible record total of £1,000 for breast cancer care.
Over the last 16 years, thousands of people have taken part in Wear It Pink, raising more than £30 million in the process. The charity Breast Cancer Now has an ambition that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live. To achieve this their research is focused on how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage.
The Ryecroft Glenton Wear it Pink day was organised, as usual by Fiona Hall who is pictured centre in the pink dress and wig! Partners and staff donated many wonderful prizes for a raffle, and baked (and bought) cakes for a cake sale. There was also a “Pick the Winning Number” competition and a ‘Pink’ quiz to add to the fun!
Many thanks to Fiona, for her endless enthusiasm and to all the staff who took part in a great day and contributed to the total amount raised. Thank you also to the partners who rounded the total up to a fantastic £1,000.
