Residents of a Worcester care home were tickled pink after raising vital funds to help combat breast cancer.


Northwick Grange Care Home held the special charity event for the official Big Pink Day for breast care awareness on 23rd October.


Residents at the Old Northwick Lane home were joined by their families, friends and neighbours for the fun day, where they held a special pink cake sale, a ‘big pink quiz’, raffles and a sold items from bric-a-brac stalls.


Raising an impressive £160.50 for Breast Cancer Care, they also enjoyed a buffet lunch.


Kelly Gatfield, manager at the home, said: “We had an amazing time at our own pink party and I’d like to thank everyone who attended to help us raise money for such an important cause.


“The aim is that by 2050 no-one should die from breast cancer. It would be great if our contribution has helped in even a small way to achieve that goal.


“We all had such a memorable day and our residents and their families loved being part of the planning and the preparations.”


Northwick Grange Care Home is part of the privately-owned Clarendon Care Group which is based in Worcestershire.


It is registered with the Care Quality Commission for 30 residents.
