Wear it Pink Day!

There were two celebrations last week for Wear it Pink Day for breast cancer care - at Whitworth Community Hospital and Creswell and Langwith GP practice!


The team at Whitworth had a raffle with prizes, cakes and dressed up for the day in pink outfits. The team were inspired by sad news that people close to them have been diagnosed with cancer. All are doing well and surviving, but a lot of people don't, and so research is invaluable.

They managed to raise over £218 during the course of the day!

Creswell and Langwith


So far they raised around £130 for breast cancer awareness - through a just giving page (Karen Vernals managed to complete a sponsored silence and raised a whopping £90) We have made/bought cakes to sell- had a couple of raffles and staff have all donated £1 for 'non uniform day' .

Well done to both teams!
