Wear it Pink for Breast Cancer Now

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness month; it’s an opportunity for people worldwide to showcase their support for everyone affected by breast cancer. The charity’s ‘Wear it Pink’ day, which took place on 22nd October, encourages people to don their best pink garments and raise some money. Honouring the infamous ‘Pink Ladies’ from the classic film ‘Grease’, staff and residents at Avalon Court dressed as their favourite stars of the film as part of their fundraising efforts. The afternoon was topped off with a fun disco, where residents Sheila and Pat were declared the best ‘Pink Lady dancers’.

At Seagrave House, cardboard cut-out Dolly Parton joined the pink-themed party. Pictures of the event were shared to Facebook, with one relative commenting, “Brilliant! Lots of smiles throughout Seagrave today.” And at Merlin Court, residents participated in a themed quiz consisting of solely ‘pink’ related questions, raising £47.50 for Breast Cancer Now in the process.
