On Friday 21 October, the college supported ‘Wear it Pink Day’ to raise awareness of breast cancer. Pink Day at college is one of our biggest annual charity events and this year we have raised a fantastic £1219 for this worthwhile cause.
The Student Executive have spent weeks planning the details of this event supported by Associate Director Richard Lee. The students have surpassed themselves this year with a wide range of opportunities to donate to this brilliant charity, including a chocolate fountain, samosas, henna painting, guessing the name of the bear, pink ribbons and, of course, plenty of cakes! Our Executive’s main hopes for the day were that everyone donate as much as possible and that staff and students showed their solidarity with the cause by wearing something pink. Richard Lee said, “It was fantastic to see the college community come together, led by our amazing Student Executive, to raise such a phenomenal sum for this great charity. We are really proud of everyone who organised the event or participated.”
By the end of the day our Pink Day memory walk was filled with messages of hope and support for those who have lost loved ones to cancer, or to those still living with the disease. The day has been a resounding success and a fantastic way to end the half term.
