Britain’s biggest, pinkest fundraising day saw people living within the Stocks Hall Care Group staff, friends and family have fun and do something very worthwhile for women with breast cancer.
The Stocks Hall Care Group’s Head Office and Home both in Skelmersdale, celebrated national ‘Wear it Pink’ day on Friday 24th October to support the Breast Cancer Campaign.
Showcasing their best pink outfits, and turning the Home’s dining room into an ‘every shade of pink tea parlour’ for afternoon tea, was the order of the day. Pink cakes were on sale and a raffle to win a selection of pink goodies to raise funds took place. Staff and people living within the Home were very proud to wear pink items of clothing and all donations went to the cancer charity.
The mission of the Breast Cancer Campaign is to beat cancer by funding ground breaking research. Now in its 13th year, Breast Cancer Campaign’s wear it pink raises over £2 million every year for world-class breast cancer research that saves and improves lives. Women are given a quicker diagnosis and more effective treatments. Every year 50,000 mothers, daughters, sisters and wives will be newly diagnosed with breast cancer and 12,000 women still die, with millions continuing to live within its long term impact.
Stocks Hall Skelmersdale Manager, Sue King said “It was so rewarding to see everyone smiling, having fun and joining together to raise funds for such a worthy cause”.
Sue Lace, Managing Director said “So many of us have either personal experience of, or know someone affected by breast cancer. The Stocks Hall Group always go the extra mile when fundraising, and we are proud to show our continued support for Breast Cancer Research”.
Thank you to everyone who took part and donated, in total the Stocks Hall Care Group raised £82.40 and we hope everyone had a fantastic day. More coverage can be seen on our website and social media sites. Here’s to next year!
