A Sanctuary Care home in Iffley is in the pink to raise money for a national charity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Supporting Breast Cancer Now
In keeping with the theme, the team and residents have made sure they looked the part by donning their brightest shades of pink including novelty wigs, jewellery and sunglasses.
“…the bright pink wig is my favourite”
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 looks wonderful – the bright pink wig is my favourite.”
Marjorie Wiltshire, who is 92 years old added: “I love the glasses, I even gave them a go myself.”
The Sanctuary Care home’s manager Sue Stubberfield added: “Breast Cancer is a cause that is so close to many here at Iffley so it’s fantastic to see so many of my team and residents rallying together to raise awareness.”
