The team wore pink to their meeting in support of the Wear it Pink Week. The week started on 16th October and ended on Friday 20th October. Some people wore something pink each day but on Friday, everyone joined in.
Everyone was invited
Patients visiting the Auditory Implant Service, were invited to wear pink, to support the Wear it Pink Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. There were puzzles, and games based on the pink theme. Patients and staff donated, baked and puzzled during the week.
The very talented Dr Zoe Foot made these cup cakes.
Many people contributed to the campaign. Jars for cash contributions were dotted around the building and there is a Just Giving page too. We raised over £100.
A QR Code and link are shown below. There is still time to donate if you would like to donate using those.
Every 10 minutes someone hears the words “you have breast cancer”. It affects both men and women, though mostly women. All funds raised through this campaign will go towards the charity Breast Cancer Now, if you would like to know more about this organisation, click on this link.
