Wigs and onesies for care home’s Wear It Pink Day

By 24th October, 2017 Press Releases No Comments

PINK wigs and onesies were donned at a Blyth care home in Northumberland to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer.

Elderly residents and staff at The Oaks Care Home, on Durban Street, wore their favourite pink clothes and enjoyed a sweet treat as part of Wear It Pink Day.

Homemade cupcakes and iced shortbread were just some of the delicious baked goods available during the event.

Resident Elsie Patterson said: “It’s so nice to get together with the ladies for a cuppa and a cake.”

Ann Mielnik, home manager of The Oaks Care Home, said: “Raising awareness of breast cancer is so important and Wear It Pink Day is a good way to remind everyone to ensure they have a regular screening.

“The residents really enjoyed the sweet treats that had been made by our kitchen team for the day. We’d like to thank everyone for taking part and helping us support such a worthy cause.”

Wear It Pink Day is Breast Cancer Now’s flagship annual fundraiser, with events taking place around the country.
