Our team and residents at Sanctuary Care, up and down the country, are feeling the pink power today as they raise money for Breast Cancer Now during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Fundraising in Canterbury
In Hersden, our new care home Meadow View Residential Care Home, which offers residential care and dementia care, will be raising money during their high-tea party – where everyone will enjoy mouth-watering cakes, which the team and residents have beautifully decorated with pink icing.
Residents will also be spending their time decorating hats, covering them with an abundance of pink feathers, ribbons and tissue paper.
Pink fun in London
Similar to Meadow View, Haven Residential Care Home in Harrow will also be hosting an all-pink coffee morning, where residents will sample a slice of something sweet from rose-coloured decorated cakes, strawberries and cream, as well as pink marshmallows, candy floss and milkshakes.
The team will also be taking part in the charity’s ‘wear it pink’ fundraising drive by donning their finest pink attire.
‘Tickled pink’ in Hull
Local musician, Johnny Pat, will also be on hand during the day to sing well-known favourites for the charitable occasion.
Meanwhile in Stourport-on-Severn, Ravenhurst Residential Care Home was a sea of pink when the home hosted their themed celebrations last week (Friday 16 October).
In keeping with the fundraising drive, the team and residents threw on their brightest shades of pink.
97-year-old resident Doreen Washbrook said: “It was great fun seeing all the staff and other residents dressed in pink for the day.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Carla Siwicki added: “It was great to see so many loved ones and residents coming together to raise money for a fantastic cause!”
