A Sanctuary Care home in Iffley was in the pink when they raised money for charity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.


The team and residents at Iffley Residential and Nursing Home in Anne Greenwood Close were a vision of pink when they hosted a themed fundraising day in exchange for donations to Breast Cancer Now. 


In keeping with the theme, the team and residents made sure they looked the part as they donned their brightest shades of pink including novelty wigs, jewellery and sunglasses.


Resident, 89-year-old Aileen Crauford – who burst out laughing when she saw the home’s receptionist Jo Ryan wearing a fluorescent pink wig, said: “Everyone looked wonderful – the bright pink wig was my favourite.”


Marjorie Wiltshire, who is 92 years old added: “I loved the glasses and I even gave them a go myself.”


The Sanctuary Care home’s manager Sue Stubberfield added: “We all had great fun supporting Breast Cancer Now, it’s a cause that is so close to many here at Iffley and it was fantastic to see so many of my team and residents rallying together to raise awareness.”


Every year, wear it pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Now.
