Staff and residents of a care home in Farnham raised over £ 200 for a breast cancer charity by participating in Wear It Pink Day, a fundraising event supporting research and vital care against breast cancer.

Nursing home staff and residents of Waverley Grange Bupa Nursing Home in Farnham, Surrey, raised funds to support Breast Cancer Now, a breast cancer awareness charity.

They donned pink clothes, held a raffle and held a cake sale to raise £ 116, an amount which was later matched by Bupa to bring the total to £ 232.

Stacey Gale, the Waverley Grange receptionist who organized the day, said: “We are very grateful to everyone who got involved and for their contributions.

“It was nice to see everyone dressed in pink – neither of us could stop smiling all day.”

Treats such as pink cupcakes, carrot cakes and cookies were baked by Waverley Grange assistant chef Scott Smith and the cake sale sold out in just a few hours.

The staff went above and beyond their outfits by wearing pink tutus, leggings, necklaces and wigs.

Hari Ciobanu, Resident Experience Manager at Waverley Grange, said: “We are proud to support Breast Cancer Now and are delighted that Bupa matches the amount raised.

“Our community of staff and residents really supported this fundraising event and it was great to see everyone having fun as we raise vital funds for such a worthy cause.

“Since Wear It Pink Day has been such a success, we are delighted to host more fundraisers in the future. “
