Wear it Pink

Bluebird Care holds a coffee morning to raise funds for Wear it Pink

Staff baked pink buns to raise money for breast cancer.  The wear it pink campaign hopes to ensure that by 2050 no one dies from breast cancer.

Every year, wear it pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month by asking people to wear something pink and donate whatever they can. Since the very first wear it pink event in 2002, they have raised over £27 million thanks to the generosity of many thousands of people taking part in schools,  workplaces and homes and social venues.

They use the money raised to fund world-class research, by the brightest scientific minds, across the UK and Ireland. They actively encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing, and help scientists and clinicians kick-start innovation. Together, they’re working to discover how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage so they can stop the disease taking lives. 

Here at Bluebird Care in York, we held a raffle and guess how many sweets in the sweetie jar.  We raised a total of £96.26 for this worthwhile charity
