Our Homes across Nellsar joined in with ‘Wear It Pink’ Day on Friday 21 October, to highlight the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness, as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Our Homes took the opportunity to reach out to their staff, friends and families, providing literature on the importance of self-examination and early detection. Our residents also got involved by making and sharing pink Breast Cancer ribbons. There was plenty of pink fancy dress, decorations, cakes, sweets and pink themed games.
Breast cancer affects both men and women, of all ages, and spreading the awareness message far and wide will help save lives and support life-changing research for breast cancer.
Commenting on the important initiative, Recreation and Well-Being Manager Viv Stead said:
“Today is Wear it Pink Day! If we can raise awareness of the importance of early detection and diagnosis, then we will have achieved our aim.
Spread the word across our Nellsar family. I’m sure we all know somebody who has been affected in some way by this disease. Research and early detection is so important.
I am sure that pink will be the colour across all our Homes today. I know there will some crazy outfits and some fun activities taking place, all for a fantastic cause!”
