Andover Leisure Centre’s Pink Day-14th October 2016
On Friday 14th October Andover Leisure centre decided to ditch the more formal work attire for a good cause. Instead, employees donned any pink clothing they could get their hands on, and decorated the centre in a similar colour scheme- all in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
‘The Big Pink’, as the day came to be known, was a light hearted event targeting awareness of Breast Cancer, and was embraced by the Leisure Centre team wholeheartedly. Leisure Centre visitors were greeted by a shocking pink reception, which can been seen below.
The team, as you can see, wore a wide array of outrageous pink attire- with themed clothing varying from sunglasses to wigs! The promotion earned Breast Cancer Care just over £100.
Romsey Wear it Pink Day- 21st October 2016
Romsey Sports Complex also went Pink recently, for a slightly different cause. The team similarly welcomed all things bright and pink on the 21st October, a week after Andover had done so, this time for Breast Cancer Now.
The team matched Andover’s enthusiasm and even found themselves a tutu and a onesie to help support the cause all day. Romsey managed to raise an impressive grand total of £370!
Mark Raithby, who helped oversee many aspects of the events was quoted as saying “We are proud to have raised so much money for such a worthwhile cause, it was great to see everyone embrace Pink Day, and we look forward to seeing it again next year!”.
